D&B Supply to add SE Boise store

D&B Supply, a locally-based provider of home, clothing, outdoor and animal supplies, plans to add a new location on Boise Ave. near Apple St.

The developer of the Eastgate Shopping Center has applied to remodel the former Hastings & Sports Authority spaces to accommodate the store.  Work began in March to remove a wall that divided the two closed retailers, and a design review application to remodel the facade was filed last week. The space will total about 35,000 square feet when recombined. The location is a one-time Albertsons store before that retailer moved down the street in the early 1990s.

D&B currently has 13 stores in Idaho and Oregon – including newer locations opened in recent years in Boise’s Overland Park, and the conversion of a former King’s store in Emmett. The retailer uses a western theme in its advertising and opened its first location in Caldwell nearly 60 years ago.

If the store is approved it will fill a retail gap in the SE Boise area. A Gordman’s store closed last week and the Sports Authority store has been closed since 2014.
