The Garland Business District is a historic walking neighborhood with an artsy vibe. 

Located in the North Hill Neighborhood in Spokane, Washington, it has an eclectic

mix of vintage and modern.  You will find over 80 businesses featuring personal services,

local art, vintage clothes and collectibles, music, books, pet care, and so much more! 

You can step back in time at our 1950s eateries or enjoy a beverage in one of our bars. 

For entertainment you can enjoy a movie at the historic Garland Theater or join in some laughs at the Blue Door Theatre.


The District features over 30 art murals created by local artists.

(Bring your camera… it’s a great place to shoot a few pictures!)

In 2020, the Garland Business District was voted as one of the best reasons to Visit the North Side of Spokane in the Inlander’s 2020 “Best Of” Readers poll.  It was also voted Best Neighborhood Shopping District, in the Inlander’s 2013 “Best Of”  Readers poll. 


The City of Spokane has recognized the Garland Business District for its leadership and innovation in environmental sustainability. When you Buy Garland, you really are buying local.


The Garland Business District incorporated in 2007 as a non-profit corporation to foster economic development and support locally-owned businesses.


The Garland District has been going strong since 1920s.  We are an eclectic neighborhood business district with over 80 small businesses. Some of them have been in the Garland District for over 30 years.  Many of them have less than 10 employees.


The shut-down due to COVID-19 has greatly impacted the Garland Business District. The combined loss to our businesses has totaled well over $1 million dollars. Almost 90% of our businesses were closed for several months.  Some are still struggling to generate income. 

They need their customers!   They miss their friends!


I’m asking that you please consider making a financial contribution to support your favorite Garland businesses.  If you are unable to visit their businesses in person, many have online accounts.  


When you visit the Garland District, I’m sure that you have your favorite businesses you like to visit.  Some of them are still available to serve you – either with online or telephone orders, take-out, or other service options. Please support them!


We can’t wait to see you on Garland in the very near future.
