Businesses are rapidly expanding in Belmont County, with new stores and hotels popping up all over the place. County officials said it is just the tip of the iceberg of things to come.
Recently, the area known as Kettler’s Ridge was transformed from a hillside into a new location for CVS Pharmacy and Auto Zone, with more businesses on the way. At the Ohio Valley Mall, Chipotle Mexican Grill will soon open its doors, as will a new motel in the lot where the former Rax fast food restaurant was located.
Belmont County commissioners said they are excited for the future of the county. “I believe it’s one of many more exciting restaurants and things that are coming out around the Ohio Valley Mall area, we are very excited, because as you know there’s a lot of growth in Belmont County and we’re just very pleased,” said Belmont County Commission President, Matt Coffland.
The Chipotle Mexican Grill is set to open before the holiday season.
