A change is happening along Highway #59 in St. Pierre. The old laundromat has been demolished to make way for a new business. Robert Martens of Mitchell operates Prairie Project Management which is handling the project. He explains why the laundromat was torn down.

"The owner was of retirement age and did not find a suitable purchaser so he sold off the equipment. The front part of the building was empty. He decided to sell it. It was purchased by a young fellow who has got some good vision."

Martens adds the owner does not want to give specifics at this time about what will be built there. But he notes it is a franchise in the food industry.

Martens says they hope to start construction almost immediately.

"We're hoping that with all the permits and everything in place, that we could actually be pouring concrete in about two weeks. We're hoping to be nicely closed in by Christmas time so that we can put supplemental heat in there to do the rest of the interior finishing. I would think that somewhere in February, February or March, there should be a viable operation there."

He says working with the Village of St. Pierre has been a pleasure, adding the process of getting all the necessary approvals has been very efficient.
