Residents are seeing definite signs of progress in the tri-city area, call it improvements in the economy.
NOW OR NEAR OPEN:
Walmart in Prescott Valley on Glassford Hill Road opened Wednesday;
McDonald's in the Frontier Village on Highway 69 is now open for business; and,
Culver's restaurant is nearing completion at the intersection of Highway 69 and Stoneridge.
DIRT WORK & WALLS:
Activity at The Crossroads on Highway 69, which includes Sam's Club and Dick's Sporting Goods, will include a Sprouts Farmers Market and, word on the street says, a T.J. Maxx retail store;
The pad in front of Natural Grocer's, just east of the Gail Gardner Walmart in Prescott, will be the site of a new National Bank of Arizona branch; and,
Dirt in front of Kohl's in Prescott Valley is being moved for a new shopping plaza, which could include a dentist's office, vision center and beauty supply business by summer.
A Prescott mainstay, Murphy's Restaurant, is branching out to the west.
J.D. Marshall, food and beverage manager, reported that Murphy's parent company, Fork in the Road, has just purchased two new properties to add to its portfolio. It will have two new restaurants - Mattina's Ristorante Italiano and Kingman Airport Café - in Kingman.
