Having outgrown their last location, eight year old ecommerce company Cache Advance, Inc. is relocating their warehouse and opening a geocaching retail store in Spokane, Washington called the Cache Cave. Cache Ad-vance humbly began in 2005 in the Spokane basement of the founder, Lisa Breitenfeldt, and now joins Space Coast Geocaching Store in Florida as the second brick and mortar geocaching retail stores in the US. The store celebrated their grand opening on Nov. 9.
Geocaching is a high tech treasure hunt played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices or GPS enabled Smartphones. Geocachers locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share their experiences online. Since the first geocache hide in May 2000, the sport has grown exponentially to over 2.2 million geo-cache hides. Today there are over 6 million people engaged in some type of geocaching. Store staff are eager to welcome all geocachers, visitors and those wanting to know more about caching.
Cache Advance has experienced steady growth along with geocaching. They manufacture and sell a complete line of geo-caching gear, including containers, GPS units, trackables and other geocaching accessories. Their new location is on 2324 E Euclid (Suite 204) in Spokane (or you can geocache them at: N 47° 41.140 W 117° 22.526). Hours are Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 12-5 p.m.
