Commerce – Iowa-based restaurant chain Maid-Rite Corporation, who recently expressed interest in opening a store in Greenville, may now do so in Commerce.
Executive Vice-President Tania Burt tells the Greenville Herald-Banner the company hopes to obtain property in Commerce owned by Mike Oglesby.
The property, located at the intersection of Monroe and Hunt Streets, is a brand new building composed of both commercial and residential space. The property is expected to come online sometime next month.
Greenville – Construction continues on the Highway 34/overpass project in Greenville.
The overall project remains on schedule, according to Area Engineer with TxDot, Craig Miser. Work was estimated to be 22 percent complete as of early July; although Miser says the work is probably a little farther along by now.
