A chain department store is making its way to Taylorville. Property owner Don Herschel (Hersh-kel) tells Regional Radio News that they are in the process of constructing a Goody’s:
Goody’s is part of Stage Stores which operates department stores under 5 different names. The company’s mission statement is “to be America’s leading small town and neighborhood retailer dedicated to delivering desirable brand name family apparel with exceptional value and service.” Herschel says they expect the construction to be done in September with the store opening up approximately 2 months after that. Goody’s will be located in the Grand Plaza on Bidwell Street. To get an idea on all the things they will offer, go to their website: goodysonline.com.
In addition to Goody’s, Herschel says they are also adding a banquet hall to Krieger’s Hometown Sports Grill that will seat about 175 people.
