New businesses taking shape at old Kmart property in Peru

Posted by wlpo on June 11, 2014

The old Kmart parking lot has turned into a construction site. Work is underway for an Advanced Auto Parts store. What you can’t see is the work taking place inside the old box-store.

Peru Economic Development Director Bob Vickery says Dunham Sports still plans to open later this year in the old Kmart. The store was announced the in February. Vickery says J.B. Contracting has been doing electrical work inside the building that’s split into two storefronts. It is being divided into more units to accommodate more businesses.

Building Inspector Jeff King says he doesn’t believe Dunham’s has applied for a building permit yet.
