St. Joe Co., Ind. It was once a controversial convenience store, but now there are plans in the works for a new store at the old Munchie Mart.
This time around the process is expected to go much smoother.
Munchie Mart has already been re-named to Ricky's Mart.
Today the St. Joseph County Plan Commission unanimously approved the convenience store's plan to remodel and expand.
The proposal is basically the same, however many of the neighbors concerns about security have been addressed this time around.
"The neighbors had some concerns about the convenience store but they also had many concerns about the neighborhood and the way they saw the neighborhood going." explained Mike Danche who represents the convenience store. "So we are hoping to be able help them in some respects with this development."
You may remember the petition was withdrawn last fall.
With Tuesday’s approval, the proposal will head to the city council in June.
