Lexington, SC (WLTX) - A portion of the old Corley Lumber Mill site near Lexington will soon become a retail store.

NAI Avant recently brokered a deal to allow Tomlinsons Stores to buy a two acre part of the property located off Sunset Boulevard. In turn, Tomlinson plans to build a 20,000 square foot retail store on the land.

Tomlinson, which operates nine stores in North and South Carolina, is a specialty wholesale company.

NAI Avant says this is the first phase in the redevelopment of the 70 acre mill site into a mixed-use project.
