An early morning fire on Jan. 23, 2007, destroyed his warehouse, yet Chuck Morningstar found himself cutting a ribbon this Jan. 23 on a new structure modeled off the old firehouse that's now Waynesboro Borough Hall. "I got great support from the community. ... It's really hard to even remember everybody who worked with us," said Morningstar, owner of Waynesboro Floor Covering.

The 800,000-square foot TruServ warehouse planned next to the Staples Distribution Center off of Hopewell Road could soon be followed by other warehouses in the area. Reading, Pa.-based Tiger Development Inc. partners have plans to develop up to 2.5 million square feet of warehouse space in the first phase of the 800-acre Hunters Green Business Park. The TruServ warehouse alone represents about half that figure, with a potential expansion to 1.2 million square feet.
