What's happening in the old 84 Lumber building?

I was driving from Norwalk recently and noticed the Farmers Quality Market on U.S. 250 looks closed. I tried to call but the number is disconnected. Did they move or is the business closed? Sarah via email

It appears as if the business has closed. If Farmers Quality Market moved elsewhere, please let us know by commenting below.

Meanwhile, Perkins Township officials discussed a new restaurant, Timbers Smokehouse, going into the building. It's not known when the new business will open up.

The owner sold the building. Sorry to see it go. They had a great deli and selection of fruits and vegetables. Poor location for that type of business. Difficult access and out away from population density.


This is HORRIBLE news. I loved the Farmers Quality Market. Please tell me they were simply forced out of the old 84 lumber building, and will be opening somewhere else soon. Say it ain't so
