Porthill Commerial: An Opportunity on the Border

The Porthill Mercantile, seen here from the eastside, is one of several active businesses held in combined ownership under one LLC. All are for sale as one. The land comprises 8.2 acres, zoned commercial and is located at the Canadian Border with waterfront on the Kootenai River. A small airstrip, used by all light aircraft crossing the border, taxis through the property below the hill to an International hanger where pilots and airplanes go through customs, either direction.

The Opportunity

The business opportunity is exceptional, especially for an enterprising company or family. Run by two generations of a single family which started with only the Mercantile, has expanded to contain a hostile conveniently located above the Big Daddy Bar & Restaurant and the postal/Fed Ex mail drop, 2 separate gas pumps and even more. In a good year, when the US/Canadian exchange rate is in a strong alignment, these businesses combined gross more than $4 Million American Dollars.

In full swing, this popular restaurant and bar with live music and a tremendous smoker is an enormous weekend draw for Creston Canadians and greater Bonners Ferry locals from the Kootenai Valley.
