As sad as it is to see some of the longtime businesses go under or pull out of Billings, it's pretty exciting to see some new fresh businesses come in.

For example, we saw Sears close towards the end of 2018. Kmart on the west end went out of business several years ago, and now there is a new Winco grocery store set to open in that location.

Rimrock Mall saw new stores open up last year like, Candy Clubhouse and Pro Image Sports.

I've noticed a lot of activity in tearing down the old Sports Authority. I wonder what is going in there? There is so much speculation.

As of January 17, 2019, according to a story by KTVQ 2, there has been no official plan to rebuild on that location or as to what might go in there if they were to rebuild.
