If anyone has any idea of the situation in Yakima, I would appreciate it. I have an oppurtunity to buy a piece of the Snokist Growers warehouse. Can someone tell me how the area's economy is doing? How is Snokist doing, did anyone hear anything about them? is there a chance that they could be empty from this space in 3 years?

Thanks

No idea currently but I do remember a time in the 1980s when the Yakima area economy was so bad that you could buy a custom built home on a hilltop overlooking the city for less than half the price of a two-bedroom tract home in a low-income neighborhood in Reno, where I lived. I'm talking really nice house on many acres for about $35 thousand 1985 dollars.

I can't imagine that the economy there has stayed that bad.

Well the economy has improved a whole lot from then but I am curious to know if it is still holding firm.

Produce is a huge gamble anyway, especially east of the Cascades. Because of late frosts this year and last year, there were lower than normal cherry and pear crops in the Columbia River Gorge. That means fewer workers spending money at places like Safeway and K-Mart.

Yakima has always seemd rough to me anyway. There always seems to be a lot of gang activity there. Growing up, we were always told of thugs that would hid under people's cars at the mall downtown and wait for people to open their car, slash their ankle and steal the car. That was not in Seattle or Portland, but in Yakima.

I would never do it because I have never liked Yakima, but others go there and fall in love.

There is basically nothing in Yakima, Washington. It's nickname is Crack-a-ma....

I had friends who lived in Yakima and from what I have been told, it is boring than BFE. There is hardly anything to do there....

You have an opportunity to buy part of a company, and you come to A.net for insight on how the company is performing? Hmm...

No No,

I have the opportunity to buy a piece of the Warehouse that they are housed in. They will be selling to an LLC being formed and one of the partners of the LLC offered me a piece. I strictly asked about the area of Yakima and the economy up there. I know where to draw the line when it comes to asking A.net
