Another new store will be opening its doors in Hazard, but the business owner has been in Hazard for quite a while.
A ground breaking was held Thursday for the number one furniture manufacturer in the United States. A 40,000 square foot Ashley Home Store will be built right next to the Wal-Mart in Hazard. The store will be run privately by the owner of Hazard furniture but he says it took the support of the public to get the project off the ground.
"We got all kinds of people from the county and the city involved. We're all pulling together and that's what it takes," said Don Davis.
The store is expected to be open within six months. Hazard Furniture has been in business for over 60 years.
