Grant County Washington Retail

One of the Fastest Growing Micropolitan Areas in the Nation

 

It came as no surprise to local residents when Forbes listed Grant County as one of the 10 fastest growing Micropolitan areas in the nation. Housing construction continued even after the bubble burst with multiple neighborhoods of 50 plus homes being built and occupied. This trend is continuing as housing developers race to keep up with demand.

Behind the increase in population is the arrival of giant manufacturing and technology companies that have built facilities and hired new employees. Some of the more recognizable names include Dell, Microsoft, SGL Automotive Carbon Fibers (a joint Venture with BMW Auto Group), Yahoo!, REC Silicon and Intuit.

This new employment growth has led to higher wages throughout Grant County and an increased demand for new retail shopping options.
