RICHLAND, WA - The owners of the Country Mercantile store, north of Pasco, are planning to build a second location in the Badger Mountain South development in Richland. 

Crews have yet to break ground on the future 14,000 square foot store, but it will be similar to the current location. The new store will also feature a bakery and homemade ice cream.

Max Uriostegui, co-manager of the Pasco location, says the owners decided to build in Badger Mountain South because customers kept asking them to move closer to town.

"Right now, 76% of our customer count is out of town, when you add tourism and everything. So, by being closer to town, we want to switch those numbers around," said Uriostegui. 

The owners are still working out the details, but they hope to have the new store open by the end of October. 

Badger Mountain South is a 20-year project that will eventually spread across 1,500 acres, near Interstate-82 and Dallas Road.
