Las Vegas Retail Jobs Created

At least one new store is helping to create Las Vegas retail jobs.

Rainbow Apparel recently announced that it will open a new store at the Edmond Town Center in West Las Vegas, a move that will create new jobs and help to stimulate the local economy. Construction on the store is expected to take between five and six months.

Rainbow USA Inc. is a national chain that specializes in junior, plus size and children's apparel. The store's presence follows the opening of Amaya's Beauty Supply, which also recently moved into the Edmond Town Center.

The 135,000-square-foot Edmond Town Center is considered to be the primary shopping center in West Las Vegas. The complex is anchored by a Buylow Supermarket and also contains an AutoZone, Wells Fargo Bank, Urban Wear, Save 99, Instant Tax Service and Executive Barbers.

Councilman Ricki Y. Barlow has been working to attract new businesses to West Las Vegas by traveling around the country and speaking to various retailers about development opportunities. His efforts helped to bring Rainbow Apparel to Edmond Town Center.

"What this lease agreement means is that even in an economy that's not so bright, there is still an opportunity within the inner city for a company such as Rainbow Apparel to come in and employ individuals from the neighborhood so they're not only gainfully employed but to give them the chance to walk to work due to the store being right inside their community," he said.

"It also gives the surrounding residents an opportunity to shop right inside of their neighborhood versus going outside of their neighborhood, which will generate new dollars right inside our community," Barlow added.

The City of Las Vegas has been heavily involved with developing Edmond Town Center. Most recently, the Las Vegas Redevelopment Agency offered Buy Low Market Inc. several financial incentives to attract the development of a much-needed grocery store for the West Las Vegas area.
