A long-vacant business in Centreville will soon be razed.
Marcus Gleaton, owner of Gleaton-Swanwick Agency in Centreville, has purchased the former Village Market property.
Gleaton recently indicated he plans to tear down the old grocery store, since repairing damage from a fire and fixing the roof could cost well over $500,000.
Two other units in the plaza, the former Habitat for Humanity office and the former Cavoni’s Pizza & Grinders, will be cleaned from water damage and made available for rental.
Gleaton plans to build self-storage units on the property and leave room for potential expansion of the commercial real estate space.
