Demolition begins on Circuit City building

Staff report


Demolition of the former Circuit City on the corner of Market Street and U.S. Route 224 began this week, and the site soon will be the home of a CVS and fast-food restaurant.

Cedwarwood Development Inc. purchased the property at 7230 Market St. for $2.2 million during a Mahoning County sheriff’s sale in April.

Rick Dilsavor, the company’s director of development, said Cedar-wood still is not ready to release what business or businesses will occupy that corner.

Cedarwood Development also owns the former Auto Toy Store, adjacent to the Circuit City property, and has presented a site plan to the township for review.

Plans show a 13,225-square-foot building that is zoned for retail use and will have a pharmacy for the CVS location and another building, 4,400 square feet, that is zoned for use as a fast-food restaurant.
