The Burger King facility in Watseka closed its doors last Monday, leaving an empty store-front on Walnut Street. Next door to the restaurant, however, the former Dawgs building is ready for a new tenant. Un-official word is that a Mexican taco outlet is preparing to move in.
Iroquois Development Association (IDA) Director Ken Barragree told the County Board recently the owner of the former Scotchmons West store in Watseka is on the verge of re-opening. Interior upgrades are in the works and new fuel pumps have been installed.
