I was lucky enough to make 3 stops here for the ‘01 season, July 7, July 20 & Oct. 12. Which was about 3 weeks before they closed. Jeff said he had a good run, but the business had dropped off, the equipment was getting run down. He was a little tired of running the drive-in as well. They sold the property to WinCo Foods which was planning a new store in Yakima. That store was never built, the land remained vacant until around 2009, when Apple Valley Dental built on the southwest corner of the lot. The rest is still undeveloped including the apartments that were on the north side of the drive-in fields.

Recently discovered that it was Marjorie Anderson who owned and operated the Country Drive-In. Its last day of operation was August 30, 2001. Mrs. Anderson died at the age of 96 in 2007.

Country was also briefly mentioned by movie critic Joe Bob Briggs in his column in 1995: http://www.dallasobserver.com/1995-10-12/film/joe-bob-briggs/2/
