Owner: Denielle Waltermire-Stuhlmiller
There's a bit of magic walking into Simply Northwest during the holiday season. There are shelves of home decor, Santa figurines, candles, sparkle, glitter and everything that glows.
You can find everything from Spokane branded gifts to clothing and pre-made gift baskets that are sure to impress.
Owner since 2011, Denielle Waltermire-Stuhlmiller ensures that the shop is ready and holds something for everyone.
She said they are known for two main things - a place for women to buy gifts for their girlfriends, and the hub of corporate gift buying in Spokane and Spokane Valley. Although she said, "We have something for everyone."
Waltermire-Stuhlmiller said things haven't always been easy. In fact, when she bought the business, she was expecting a baby and it was the Christmas season. And, COVID hit them hard in the spring with boxes of inventory for Easter, Mother's Day and Administrative Assistants day due to mandates, their doors were closed for eight weeks.
She said she worked hard to maintain morale with her full-time employees and sent them little gifts to keep them going. Now they are fully open, with safety precautions - and be sure to wear your mask.
But be prepared to "feel" the holiday season at Simply Northwest once again!
