The Conley clan suffered an incalculable loss this week.
John R. Conley Jr. - our brother, number 8 to our 11, namesake to our dad in all things including, charm, wit, and storytelling prowess; suffered sudden and unexpected complications from cancer treatment on the opening day of our liquidation sale.
Our family and employees carried on with our sale and have been all the more grateful for the support that has surrounded our buildings.
This is particularly difficult to present to you, our most loyal customers and followers. Today we announce our retirement and the closure of The White Elephant stores.
The time has come for us to step out from behind the counter and enjoy the passions of family and recreation that this business was founded upon. It has been a tremendous run. The White Elephant has served our family well and provided us with a good and beautiful life.
We are forever indebted to our loyal customers, current and past employees, our cherished friends, and the entire Spokane community who have supported us with remarkable dedication for the past 74 years!
Our liquidation sale continues until all inventory is sold!
Mondays through Saturdays: 9am to 6pm
Sundays: 11am to 5pm
Thank You, Spokane!
Our patriarch and founder John Conley and his bride Mary built a business based on their passions - faith, family, friends and fishing! We’ve been wishing we could put up a sign that says “Gone Fishin'” but for the last several weeks we’ve just been reminiscing.
