MARION, Ill. (WSIL -- Chris Sollers, owner of Landscapes by Chris Sollers, celebrated the groundbreaking of a new Land and Garden Center slated for completion in Spring 2022.
The new center will be located at 105 East DeYoung Street in Marion, Illinois.
Sollers and his employees were joined by members of the Marion Chamber of Commerce, State Representative Dave Severin, and City of Marion Mayor Mike Absher.
Sollers said the multi-functional 12-month building and greenhouse will include a coffee shop and cafe, shade garden, retail center, office space, and possibly an event center.
