If things go as planned business will be picking up in northern Jessamine County.
Last Thursday, White/Reach LLC asked the Nicholasville City Commission's approval to go before the annexation committee for the purpose of bringing a Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and a Rite Aid to northern Jessamine County.
"They're just trying to get the property annexed," said Planning Commission Director Greg Bohnett. "That's what they approached the commission for. We (annexation committee) talked about it, and we're going to make a recommendation at the first meeting in April (April 12)."
Attorney Bruce Smith, representing White/Reach LLC, said his client had reached a deal to purchase King's Garden, adding the Cracker Barrel and a Rite Aid will be located in that area.
