Weber’s Corner has been sold to a corporation based in Owensboro, with the new owners preparing the store for reopening on April 29.
Neil Patel told the Clarion his brother Amrick Jammu will operate the business, which is included in the family’s Kanika, Inc., company. The family operates several gas stations and liquor stores in Owensboro.
“We are excited to be in Hancock County,” Patel said. “We will have all kinds of foods in the market, such as hamburgers, pizza, and plate lunches and dinners.”
The family is currently readying the property for renewed business after the location had been closed for several years.
Patel said the company has applied for a malt beverage license from Kentucky Alcoholic Beverage Control, and will be able to sell beer with a conditional license until the formal license is approved.
The legal advertisement for the license application appears in this edition of the Clarion. Patel said the store will also be a licensed retailer for the Kentucky Lottery.
As well, the Clarion will be carried for single-copy sales.
“We will also offer a seating area for customers who would like to relax for a while or eat their lunch at the store,” Patel said. “This will be our first store in Hancock County, and we are happy to be a part of the community.”
The store will also have an ATM for cash withdrawals.
Weber’s Corner market is located near Pellville at 9637 State Route 69, at the highway’s intersection with Kentucky 144.
