Yukon attracts retail

According to the Yukon Chamber of Commerce, 65 new businesses have opened in the past year, including lots of new retail.

“We are doing much better this year than we were before,” said Paisley Hopkins, the chamber's executive director. “We are becoming a larger trade area and have people coming in from the Clinton area to shop.”

The retail development at Interstate 40 and Garth Brooks Boulevard continues to be popular, but the downtown area has seen a renewed interest, she added.

New Yukon retailers include The Nines Boutique, Best Feet Forward, Yukon Health & Fitness Club, The Pink Bowtique, The Herban Market, Big Boys Tire & Wheel, Yukon Donuts, Lil' Bear Beads and more, according to the chamber.
