The expansion of a business in Morton will add 20 more jobs.
Blain's Farm and Fleet plans to build a new 127,000 square foot store at the corner of Courtland and Morton Avenues in Morton.
President and CEO Robert Blain is quoted in a news release as saying, "Frankly, we have known for some time that we've outgrown our old location."
Blain said he considered other communities for the new store but elected to stay in Morton because, "Our founders made the decision almost 40 years ago that Morton was the right place to put down roots and invest their hard-earned money."
Blain also credits, "Our ability to work with Village administration."
The start of construction depends on getting the necessary permits from the Village, but it's hoped the new store will be open in July of 2014.
