Let’s talk about a big event in Wenatchee some 46 years ago. On Aug. 17, 1966, Valley North Shopping Center opened for business. Several years in the planning, construction began Aug. 6, 1965. According to a news article at the time, more than $1.75 million was paid in wages to contractors building the 165,000 square feet of space. The construction itself cost over $3 million.
