Retailers build to fill vacant spots on US 80
Longview, TX (Longview News-Journal) — Two construction projects are filling in vacant corners along a busy stretch of Marshall Avenue in Longview.
The second Advance Auto Parts store in Longview is building at the corner of Marshall Avenue and Green Street. And a Cash Express store is nearing completion a few blocks west, at Center Street and Marshall Avenue.
Steven Davis, district manager for Advance Auto Parts, said construction of the new $4.2 million outlet is an effort to take better care of customers in the center of town.
Advance’s other Longview store is at 4006 W. Marshall Ave., near the intersection of Loop 281 and Marshall Avenue.
