Conn's Appliances, Inc., a Texas-based retailer, recently purchased the Stateline Square Shopping Center at 550 Stateline Rd. (Formerly the Kmart and Kroger stores near Stateline Rd./Interstate 55 and currently leased to Burlington Coat Factory, Essex Bargain Hunt, and Home Decor Liquidators). Conn's also has plans to construct a new building at this site in excess of 40,000 square feet to market their own line of products which includes home appliances, furniture, bedding, and electronics. Conn's currently has 90 retail locations in 11 states.
This is big news for our City as we continue to encourage revitalization of economic development in the West End Business District which is the original part of our City and the first location for business in our City.
