New Business in Union Gap

Posted: Updated:

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.
