||Booneville Hardware building to be renovated
BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) — It's one of the most well-known buildings in Booneville.
Work will soon begin to restore Booneville Hardware store.
The city is moving forward with plans to replace the electrical system.
A budget of approximately $35,000 is hoped to cover the costs of that project along with restoration of the front of the building.
The Booneville Hardware Store is often used for concert performances and wedding receptions.
The mayor believes it can eventually become available for numerous other events.
"We can revitalize our downtown, but I believe it's all gonna start with our hardware building," said Mayor Blythe.
The city's portion of the construction budget is $15,000.
Local manufacturer ACCO Brands Corporation funded the rest in the form of a grant.
