WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Construction of a new $5 million strip mall anchored by a chain grocery store is being planned for part of the former Welty farm across from Midvale Road on Pa. 16, the co-owner of the Atlanta company building the project said Tuesday.
Douglas Bercu, who with Michael Timmons owns Timber Development Corp., said negotiations are nearly complete with Food Lion officials to build a store in their new shopping center. Final lease agreements are ready to be signed by Food Lion officials, Bercu said.
The mall will cover 21,000 square feet of retail space. There will be about a dozen small shops in addition to the grocery store and a Dollar General store. Two parcels will be available for lease, Bercu said.
Altogether, Timber Development is getting 11 acres from the estate of Richard and Catherine Welty, said Jerry Zeigler, code enforcement officer for Washington Township.
