YAKIMA, Wash. - Another retailer became open for business in Union Gap on Monday. Toyota of Yakima is the newest resident to join a growing business district on Valley Mall Boulevard.
Scott Anglin manages the service department at the dealership. He says they are happy to be in the neighborhood and sees a bright future for the area.
"We've just seen this road get busier and busier in the last three years and it's going to be a great commercial retail center."
City officials say the area is attractive to retailers because of the open land and because Valley Mall Boulevard is a popular road.
They also say the recent move by Costco last year has helped. Developers are hoping to build a shopping center in the area as well. There will be a public hearing next month for that project.
