HARRODSBURG - For more than a decade Pat Peavler peddled her flowers and vegetable plants in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot, but a difference of 100 feet caused her such a headache that she decided to move across town.
The second weekend in April, weather permitting, she will be at the Boyle County Fairgrounds selling marigolds, begonias, periwinkles, ferns and other plants fresh from her nursery.
When Save-A-Lot bought the Piggly Wiggly building on East Lexington Avenue last fall, the owners said that they would be glad to have Peavler stay. However, in February, they asked if she would move 100 feet away from the front of the building.
No problem, or so Peavler thought.
Peavler has had a conditional use permit for a temporary business, from April to May. When the business moves, even 100 feet, she must be approved for another permit, according to Danville-Boyle County Planning and Zoning.
