RICHLAND, Wash. -- After 18 years out in Pasco, Country Mercantile is adding another location.

The company broke ground in Badger Mountain South today.

The store will be just as big as the Pasco location but with an Italian theme. Expect the same specialty goods and produce, as well as gelato and an artisan bakery.

There'll be no Harvest Festival, but other events are possible.

"It's a work in progress, and so we're getting the store up and running and servicing the community as best we can, and then we're flexible to the community's wants and desires," said owner Jay Wood.

The new Country Mercantile off Dallas Road is expected to open early next year.
