HomeGoods buys Lordstown house, but no word on plant plans
HomeGoods bought a house this week on Hallock Young Roadnear the site where the company had planned to develop a 1.2 million-square-foot, $160 million distribution center.
The company purchased a 2.5-acre property at 2527 Hallock Young Road on Tuesday for $225,000, according to Trumbull County Auditor records. Auditor records list the property’s total value at $131,800.
Despite the sale, village Mayor Arno Hill said it doesn’t mean HomeGoods plans to build in Lordstown.
“I won’t say it’s a sign they’re coming [here] or not,” Hill 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 [the homeowners] in limbo.”
