We've looked at restaurants and entertainment. Now, lets look at retail. When it comes to retail shopping, the Yakima area seems to be on an upswing. In the last few years, we've seen the addition of the West Valley Walmart and Kohl's,  Target is expanding, and we will soon see the return of J.C. Penney.  We are well served in the area by hardware, furniture, appliance, and grocery stores. (Both big box stores and locally owned independents)

I for one, would like to see a better selection of men's clothing, especially in the Big and Tall variety. I would rather spend my money locally than online. Casual clothes are no problem, but for dressier clothes, it can be a hassle.

What other type of retail outlets would you like to see come to the Yakima area?

Be sure and leave us a comment.
