RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) -- Workers in Rib Mountain have started construction on two new stores.
Town Administrator Gaylene Rhoden said a Hobby Lobby store and an Ulta Beauty store are being built on Rib Mountain Drive. Workers broke ground last week -- and have already torn down two homes to make space for the stores. Rhoden said the stores will help boost the town's reputation as a shopping destination.
"It's amazing how many people are saying, oh I'm so glad we're getting a Hobby Lobby," said Rhoden. "I didn't realize the Hobby Lobby was as well known and very popular amongst people."
The contractors for the pair of buildings said construction should be wrapped up by the end of the summer. They plan to have the stores open by October.
