The number of new businesses coming to Claresholm is growing.
People driving through Claresholm may have noticed a new building going up on the Old Fox Drive-In lot.
The drive-in has been torn down and the Town's Development Officer, Tara VanDellen, says a new Sobeys liquor store is under construction.
"We're excited about that new development right along the highway corridor. A little bit of a sad day when that's been gone, but obviously an opportunity for development and we're happy to see the new business moving into town."
VanDellen says, the drive-in sat for sale for five or six years.
She adds, the Town of Claresholm has annexed new industrial and commercial land on it's southeast end which they have some definite plans for.
"We're looking at opportunities to either partner with the developers, or the land owners, to have an eventual expansion into that area. Obviously, the need for industrial and commercial land in the town of Claresholm was seen by council."
She says, they're looking forward to the expansion of business in Claresholm which can also spark residential growth.
