The Lower Level has a new location, and new look. No longer a lower level establishment, the newly dubbed Pop In & Shop is located at 415 D Street in historical downtown Fairbury.
“It is a lot easier for some people to get to,” said owner and operator Cori Lucking.
She went on to say she would run into issues at the Lower Level where people who either wanted to donate items or come shopping could not make it down the stairs. Lucking said despite the higher rent, she believes it was worth the move.
“I had more people come through in the first three days I was open than I did in a month over there,” Lucking said.
The work put into opening up, Lucking commented was very extensive. She chose the new location because it is the busiest side of the square. Her one regret was not being open on Thanksgiving.
“There was a lot of people walking by and looking to see if we were open,” Lucking said.
Pop In & Shop will be open 10a.m. to 7p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 11a.m. to 3p.m. on Sunday.
