One of the many businesses that didn't survive the prolonged lockdown during the pandemic and challenging economic conditions afterward was West Valley Fitness. Sadly, the location in The Orchards shopping center has sat vacant for just about a year now. Luckily, a business has decided to open up another one of its stores in that location.

As I was shopping at Rosaurs and the Dollar Tree in the shopping complex at the corner of 72nd Ave. and Tieton Dr., I saw a new sign on the location, so I decided to snap a few pictures.

There does not appear to be a date set for when the new AutoZone will be open, but from the look inside the building, it looks to be sooner rather than later.
