The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard about 2 new businesses, and a move of an existing business, all into a newly remodeled Taylorville building, during their Tuesday luncheon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
Pam Moses is the new owner of the former F. E. Storm Lumber building at the corner of Market and Clay Streets in Taylorville. She purchased the building a year and a half ago, after the lumber yard closed 5 years ago. Extension renovation has taken place since she purchased it.
They ended up putting up brand new trusses and a new roof on all 3 buildings.
That building today houses 2 new businesses and a 3rd business that moved from Decatur.
The first new business is “Behind Locked Doors”, which offers people the thrill of finding their way thru one of 2 escape rooms. Moses said the rooms change themes thru-out the year, such as Halloween, an airplane, and a jail. Anywhere from 2 to 10 people can participate.
The second new business is a new recycling business called “Indoor Storage Shed Self Sort Recycling”. As the name implies, it offers a free place for residents to recycle; all they have to do is the sorting. Moses says she hopes to turn this into a profitable business in the coming months, with the profit coming from the bundling and selling of the items to be recycled.
The 3rd business in the complex Moses remodeled, is one she owns and moved from Decatur to her Taylorville building. Trans Coastal Supply Company exports agriculture commodities to Asia.
