HomeGoods buys house in Lordstown
LORDSTOWN — HomeGoods this week purchased a house on Hallock Young Road in the village, according to Trumbull County Auditor records.
The house is located near the site where the company had planned to build a 1.2-million-square-foot distribution center, a plan that is now in question after outcry from some residents caused the company to reconsider and look at other sites.
According to auditor records, the company purchased the house at 2527 Hallock Young Road Tuesday for $225,000.
Village Mayor Arno Hill cautioned against reading anything into the purchase.
“I think they’re keeping good on their word,” he said. “I wouldn’t read a lot into that right now. They said they would buy it. They didn’t want to leave the people in limbo.”
The Vindicator has reached out to HomeGoods for comment.
Asked earlier this week for updates on plans to locate in the Valley, a spokeswoman declined to comment.
