Featured in Spokane CDA Living as the city's most favored purveyor of tables, cabinets, living-room, and traditional furniture, Walker's has been replenishing sparse floors with quality furnishings for more than 30 years. Cover up a cumbersome oubliette or manhole with the Napa Collection's chocolate-brown sofa, or peruse the home office section to locate a more appropriate means of book storage than the milk crates or hollowed-out tauntauns of college days. Nearly all the furniture you'll test-drive in-store is actually in-stock, which means restless homeowners won’t have to sit on empty kegs, cable spools, or unemployed character actors disguised as divans whilst waiting for their precious cargo to arrive.

For 19 years, Grizzly Ranch Productions’ technicians have specialized in video production. They’ve seen significant technological turnover during that time, with outdated formats like clunky videotapes whittled from wood giving way to sleek digital discs. Using their years of experience with video formats, they help clients make the switch to modern storage devices, preserving memories by transferring video footage onto DVDs and CDs. They can also create viewing discs of images from slides or photographs and design customized memory labels and covers for CDs and DVDs.
The technicians at Discount Heating & Cooling Inc. have been keeping indoor climates comfortable since 1972. With so much experience, it's no wonder they move so quickly. Techs respond to calls within one hour and, upon arriving, immediately set to work inspecting furnaces and air conditioners with video and electronic measuring tools. From there, the team can either repair broken units or install all new equipment, leaving behind a 20-year warranty owners can proudly hang on their refrigerator.
What once began as a gerontology master’s project soon became a time-saving solution for homeowners across the country. In 2000, Spectrum founder and physical therapist Jenny Nelson became alarmed by the number of senior citizens she met with injuries caused by doing work around their homes. While pursuing her degree in gerontology, she made it her master’s project to found a care company that assisted seniors living on their own with tasks that weren’t simply health related. Soon thereafter, Spectrum Home Services was born and became Nelson’s life’s work.
By 2008, when Hal and Jeanette Fairless opened the Pacific Northwest franchise, Spectrum had grown to serve everyone, regardless of age or presence of free cake in the home. Spectrum’s original focus is still seen in its handyman services, through which techs specialize in building wheelchair ramps, installing grab bars and lifts, and performing ADA bathroom modifications. Cleaning crews come out weekly, biweekly, monthly, or as needed to tidy up living spaces, and organization specialists help remove clutter from busy lives. For local moves or seniors transferring to an alternative living facility, Spectrum’s relocation team will plan the project from start to finish.
