The new FiveStar Food Mart convenience store opened yesterday at around 2 p.m. located at the northeast corner of Route 13 (West DeYoung) and Halfway Road just west of Exit 54.
The store is the first Illinois location for Newcomb Oil Co., a Bardstown, Kentucky-based company.
It's also the first of what will hopefully be several new projects on the former site of the old Wolohan Lumber Co. The parent company sold most of its stores and morphed into a real estate development company focusing on its real estate holdings such as the Marion land.
The convenience store is just one of several projects underway on the city's west side.
