After six years of planning, paperwork and more paperwork, ground was broken on the Pinckneyville Shopping Center LLC, which will be located at the south end of town.
The shopping center will house Kellerman's Feed Store and JC's Air Conditioning.
The building will arrive the first week of February. The owners of the new building- Jim Brand, Carol Brand, Carol Kellerman and Doug Kellerman- have set a target date of May 1 for opening. The opening date is largely dependent upon the weather.
There will be land available for future development once the feed store and air conditioning businesses move into the new space.
The larger space will allow Kellerman's Feed Store to expand their product lines,which draw customers from across the region.
