New Country Mercantile Breaks Ground in South Richland

The Country Mercantile breaks ground today on its new location in South Richland.

It's near the intersection of Dallas Road and Interstate 82 in the new Badger Mountain South development.

Owners say it will be a replica of the store north of Pasco and will also have a bakery and Italian gelato.

Most of the items sold there will be made on site.

The store is expected to be ready to open in early 2015 and will employ about 40 people.
