UNION GAP--Some long-awaited additions to the Yakima Valley's retail landscape should open soon.
The storefront of ULTA, a cosmetic and beauty store, is up at the Valley Mall Plaza in Union Gap. They've posted job openings online and have scheduled a grand opening for May 14.
Valley Mall owner Fred Bruning, President of Centercal Properties, said in an e-mail to KNDO construction will soon begin next door to ULTA on a Bed, Bath and Beyond store, which Bruning hopes will open in July.
Bruning expects construction to begin at the Valley Mall itself in the coming weeks. Kohl's Department Store will fill an anchor space vacated when Gottschalks filed for bankruptcy in 2009. The mall will expand the existing space to accommodate Kohl's.
