What could be more quintessentially Yachatsian than a business renting foreign and independent films, selling locally grown produce and over 200 herbs and spices, and offering office services and supplies?
Vicky and Derek Prince, the owners of Ya-Hots Video Country Store, wanted to make what are usually big-city goods and services available at a reasonable price in a small town.
The Princes bought the store in 2009. Before that, Shirley owned it. Shirley, who died in 2010 at the age of 74, just went by Shirley and claimed she had no last name, sort of like Madona.
John Gillette built the building in what had been the Dairy Queen parking lot (the Green Salmon across the street used to be a DQ). He ran a real estate business on the north side, and his wife, Jan, ran a video and yarn shop on the southside.
