Magic Market, a 6,500 s.f. grocery with gas, is the latest store to be announced for Pinewood Shopping Center. Paperwork for the project was sign Monday, October 23, 2017, he said.

Mike Stephens, a partner in the venture, said that the store will offer major competition in the gas business in Columbia in Columbia, as well as grocery and deli items in a store larger than most other convenience stores.

Magic Market will occupy approximately 2.1 acres in the corner lot just of the shopping center complex.

The store will be operated by experienced retailers with stores in the Lexington and Cincinnati areas, Mr. Stephens said, but "Magic Market," will be the only store by that name.

Jeff Arnold of Bowling Green, KY, the engineer who laid out Holladay Place, will be the civil engineer for the project.

Danny Pyles' Pyles Excavating will do the site work, as he has for the rest of Pinewood Shopping Center.

Benton Fudge will design the buildings, Mr. Stephens said. He also designed the balance of the buildings already nearing completion at the Center.

"The big thing we want the people of Adair County to know," Stephens said, "is that finally there will be real competition for their fuel dollars." He said that he will be announcing more details about the partnerships, ownership, brands and other details shortly.

He said that he now projects that the center will be open around January 1, 2018.
