Buttons building on Main St.

The Button family continues its strong presence on Grand Coulee’s Main Street with the doubling of its present graphic design and signage business, Button It.

Button It is doubling its business presence on Grand Coulee’s Main Street with the addition of room for sign fabrication and installation. Owners Richie and Amanda Button are shown with their two childrten, Hope, 3 and Lilly, 7. The Buttons hope to have the building enclosed so they can do some of the work there that they have had to do at home. Button It specializes in graphic design, signage and other promotional interests.

Richie and Amanda Button also own the building next to them which was occupied by their jeweler grandfather Dick Button and purchased from Button’s aunt.

The new portion of their storefront will house a large drive-in bay for sign installation and steel fabrication.

“We are continuing the present roofline and eventually will do the same with the old jewelry store so it has a pleasant appearance from the street, and also so there won’t be water leakage between storefronts,” Button said.

He has been doing most of the work, although he had help putting in place beams weighing several hundred pounds.

Button said he will likely move his office to the back part of the new building, which he hopes will be operable as soon as possible, but definitely before winter sets in.
