Monday, June 25, the doors to one of Yakima's newest fashion store opened. This place rules for several reasons.

Being a new business in Yakima I wanted to check it out and show my support but it's also a store I'm familiar with as it's a place we like to stop on our way to Seattle. Now we don't need to drive as far!

Torrid is a women's fashion store catering to plus-sized women but it's not just muumuus and blouses. It's trendy shirts, jeans, shorts, skirts, leggings and a lot more. I've certainly noticed they usually have a huge clearance rack at any given time. That's good news for my wallet.

This Saturday is their grand opening event.

You can find Torrid as part of Valley Mall, but it's not in the mall directly. It's in that area next to Ulta (for guys, it's across from GameStop) just off of Washington making it easy to get in and out of.

Definitely worth checking out sometime. Or, if you're like me, park in the middle so she can go shopping while you check out GameStop.
