August 2022 - Spanish Fork Happenings

Target has announced on their website that they are coming to Spanish Fork in the old KMart building at 900 E Expressway Lane. Target is planning on constructing a 100,000 sq ft store but it’s unclear if it will be a SuperTarget or a regular Target.  I will update you as more information becomes available.

Zao Asian Cafe is opening on August 9th and is located at  711 E 800 N.  Be sure to check out their social media pages for grand opening information.

JDawgs is currently under construction in the Harbor Freight shopping center and is expected to open in August or September.

The Utah County Fair starts Thursday, August 4th and runs through Saturday, August 6th here in Spanish Fork.  There will be a rodeo, monster trucks and the demolition derby.  Some events require tickets but the fair is free to get in to. Check out their website for more information:

Jurassic Tacos opened in July at 1253 Canyon Creek Parkway in the TJMaxx shopping center.

Quick Quack is opening another location on Arrowhead Road and Main Street in Spanish Fork.  The coming soon sign is up but no word on when it will be completed.

The Spanish Fork Chamber of Commerce Farmer’s Market began last week.  The market is located on Center Street next to the police station.  I encourage you to support local farmers and get some fresh food on a weekly basis until October.  

Roll Up Crepes is planning on being open by Labor Day and is located in the Macey’s shopping center near Sherwin-Williams.

The shift in the real estate market has happened quickly and is almost palpable!  Increased interest rates with a slowing economy and fears of a recession have eroded consumer confidence and caused potential homebuyers and sellers to pause and take a breath.  This has translated into home prices slowing down from their rapid increase and brought our wild real estate ride to a halt.  Utah’s housing market needed something to slow it down and it’s happening now.  Buyers, this is fantastic news!  You will no longer need to get into a bidding war with sellers and can even negotiate closing cost or the purchase price!  Sellers, we need to realign expectations of timelines and what this market looks like for you.  Homes are sitting on the market much longer now with an average of 23 days for the state of Utah.  What does this all mean for your situation?  Give me a call or reach out to me via social media and we can talk about it.  Let’s change the narrative from fear to facts and get your real estate needs taken care of!
