BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT NEWS

WINNSBORO AREA

From the City’s Main Street Program’s monthly merchant meeting, held the first Tuesday of each month at 8:30 a.m. at the Depot,  the Area Chamber reports plans on hosting their annual 4th of July Fireworks this year, returning to Pleasure Point at Lake Winnsboro. Winnsboro is experiencing solid measurable growth this spring, with Haven's opening at 303 N. Main Street downtown, as well as the new senior center under renovation and construction where the old Varsity Diner /Theater  was located at 314 N. Main. The Culture Club on Elm Street is also seeing some improvements and it looks like the Clark House Hotel on Main is almost complete, with beautiful gazebo adorned with huge chunks of art slag glass embedded in the stonework. Also look for some bright things on the horizon for Christian Radio Station KWNS 1047, with Lottie Foster's granddaughter Kim R. Foster finishing her broadcasting degree (congratulations), and working at expanding the marketing and music mix lineup of Winnsboro's long-time station. A  new BAKERY is coming along in the old bait shop at 219 E. Broadway / Hwy. 11.   Winnsboro’s renowned and popular Farmer’s Market runs though October, and the next Monday Night Live event is slated for June 20.     The rumor mill is also churning in late May with a prospective Pizza Hut coming to town on the planning board, as well as a future new location for the town’s Sonic.
