“Our other Boise location—a DownEast Basics store in the Boise Towne Square Mall—has performed very well, indicating this is a strong market for our clothing,” said DownEast CEO Klane Murphy. “Over the years, we’ve also heard from numerous local shoppers familiar with our furniture concept in Idaho Falls and other places, asking for us to expand that part of our business here, as well. From a store count perspective, we’re already one of the largest retailers in the state, particularly with regard to women’s clothing, and we look forward to continuing to expand our presence and breadth of offerings for Idaho shoppers.”
