Okawville Equipment is constructing a 6,000 square foot addition for offices, lawn and garden showroom, service counter, and repair shop.
The addition to the business on Elm St. at the west entrance of town will also have a covered area for an outdoor showroom for tractors and other equipment.
“We want to bring the best shopping experience to our customers,” said Cody Whitworth, who co-owns the business with Jon Wolf.
The building that was constructed in 1948 will also get a new front to tie in with the addition to the east.
