HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -- A new store is coming to a Hannibal shopping plaza and other businesses in the area think it will help draw in more customers for them.
A new Burkes Outlet location is coming to 4419 McMasters Avenue… in the Huck Finn shopping center.
Burkes Outlet sells merchandise like clothing, home décor and toys.
Rent One Store Manager Allen Davis thinks it's important that Hannibal keeps their plazas filled with stores.
"That's very important because the more empty the stores are, it looks more like a ghost and you're not gonna get a lot of business. The more businesses that are filling up this shopping centers, helps a lot of these businesses out," Davis said.
Construction is still going on at the new Burkes Outlet location. It is expected to open at the end of October.
