Sports Company G I Joe's to opens store in eastern Washington

Feb '06
Northwest-based sports, outdoor & more store G I JOE'S announced the construction and the planned opening of a new Kennewick, Washington G I Joe's store.

The opening is scheduled for late April.

The Kennewick store, G I Joe's 24th, will utilize 52,000 sq ft of the former Wal-Mart store located at 7011 W Canal St, just off Columbia Center Boulevard.

The building will be completely reconfigured and remodeled to accommodate G I Joe's.

G I Joe's CEO and President, Norm Daniels, said, "The Tri-Cities, and Kennewick especially, have been high on their expansion list for a long time.

They finally found the right size building to be able to offer area sports and outdoor enthusiasts their unique combination of brand name merchandise, selection and excellent service."

Mike Murphy will transfer from Medford, Oregon to manage the Kennewick store.

Murphy said, "Kennewick will follow G I Joe's strategy of offering the best brands in every department and then completing the selection with 'better' brands."

"The G I Joe's selection makes it possible for the advanced sports & outdoor enthusiast to find the expertise and technical gear they want, yet still allows the recreational or casual outdoor customer to find what they need and want," Murphy added.

G I Joe's separates its stores into specific sports and activities, and within those areas uses a specialty shop approach, where needed, to give the customer the technical information or expertise they need and want.
