One of Navasota’s oldest, and best hidden businesses will soon be coming out of the shadows, as Baylor Lumber and Building Company expands from it’s original location nestled behind the Sunny Furman Theatre to occupy a full block of Navasota’s main drag.
Several dozen well-wishers gathered at Washington and 9th to witness owner Vickie Colbasinski turn the first shovel-full of dirt. She says Baylor’s been looking forward to getting “up here and out of the hole back there” for a year now.
Colbasinski says the new 10,000 square foot facility will greatly expand Baylor’s retail offerings. There’ll be hardware, plumbing, she explains, adding they hope to triple their business by putting in things that are not available here right now.
Colbasinski tells Navasota News they are planning for the new facility to be open very soon, by September 1st.
Mayor Bert Miller was on hand to remind everyone this will be another reason not to have to go to College Station.
And while Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Johnny McNally verifies that Baylor has been a member in good standing of the chamber for more than three decades now, Colbasinski says they’ve discovered receipts in the attic going all the way back to 1906.
