The 9,100 square foot store is slated to be located to the right of the former Centerville Grille restaurant on a nearly two-acre parcel.

June 3, 2015

This move frees up funding in the township's road crew budget to accept the lowest paving bid of $214,943.75 from G.O. Hawbaker.
The township had budgeted $189,025 for paving, resulting in a difference of over $25,000 when compared to the lowest bid.
