Unfortunately, there are no decent surplus stores here anymore. You can poke around the Army Navy store on the corner of Division and Buckeye but they sell mostly camping gear and faux milsurp stuff these days. There used to be a shop or two just over the state line in Post Falls,Idaho.

If you're in Spokane, get down to Riverfront Park to view the Spokane River falls; they are raging this time of year and truly awesome to see!

What kind of stuff are you looking for? I know the area very well, and even I might have something you are looking for.

I have been to Spokane many times. There are not any military related shops, but I have found some cool stuff (original 1943 K ration boxes) at the antique stores in the north side of town.

I'll comment here as well, there are a few places you can go all within driving distance.  


MeatCan provided one really good place, Army Navy Surplus on Division and Buckeye.  Lots of neat stuff, prices are OK, parking is tricky, I've always found some cool items after digging around.  The guy that runs the store is pleasant and courteous to talk too. If your in need of a hard to find item he can call around with his contacts and point you in the right direction.


Next place is Army surplus in the valley.  Small store room, but the guys that runs the store also restores used military vehicles on the side. Half his store caters to the paintball/air-soft crowd.  Again, like above, the guys who runs it is really nice and professional.  


There is another store is Best Buy Surplus on Sprague Ave.  That one is a true surplus in the sense but not necessarily military surplus as you an find tools, camping supplies, ammo, odd hardware, work clothing and such.  Prices are OK, again parking is a little tricky.


Lastly, SOS surplus in Post Falls, ID just across the state line.  Giant warehouse looking place, true surplus like Best Buy.  Lots of military stuff, prices are debatable, nothing is marked so you might want to ask before buying something.  Low lighting, does have camping supplies, guns, ammo, hard to find stuff, etc. Kind of fun to walk around and look.
