Auctioneer’s Note:

For many years the owners of this building ran a successful Chinese restaurant on the lower level while renting the upper level office suites. They have since retired and now you have an excellent opportunity to own an income-producing commercial building in a well-established and bustling commercial district. Easily visible from Hwy 291 and surrounded by brand name establishments, this flexible space has many potential uses.  Stop by an inspection and then come and name your price!
