SPOKANE, Wash. — Cache Advance recently relocated their geocaching retail store and warehouse, the Cache Cave, to the Spokane Valley from central Spokane. The Grand Opening of the new location is Fri. July 31, from 4 – 6 p.m. Ribbon Cutting, courtesy of Greater Spokane Incorporated, will be at 4 p.m., followed by an open house.
The new Spokane Valley location offers a larger retail and classroom space, additional parking, better store visibility and easier access.
“I’m thrilled with the new location. We are already seeing an increase in foot traffic due to the busyness of the area and teaching geocaching to our new visitors,” said Lisa Breitenfeldt, the CEO and president of Cache Advance.
Geocaching is a high tech treasure hunt, and Cache Advance’s products are the treasure, a press release from the organization stated. Played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices or Smartphones, geocachers locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share their experiences online. Since the first geocache hide in May 2000, the sport has grown nearly exponentially to over 2.6 million geocache hides. Today there are over 8 million playing the game. Launched in 2005, Cache Advance, Inc. has experienced steady growth along with the game.
Cache Cave summer hours are:
Fridays 2 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Saturdays 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Or by appointment.
In addition to local customers and geocaching classes, Cache Advance supplies geocaching containers and accessories to dozens of retailers across the globe; including Amazon, geocaching.com and many other domestic and international resellers. The newest venture, a monthly subscription box of geocaching items called the Cache Crate, is gaining subscribers nearly daily and receiving rave reviews, the release stated.
