Shop owners finding a new use for an old building
As part of the Venture Local Franklin (VLF) initiative, Macon County News is teaming up with VLF to highlight local businesses throughout Franklin. Each week, MCN selects locally owned and operated businesses in a different category. It is our goal at MCN to work with VLF to encourage residents to shop locally and utilize the resources Franklin has to offer.
Some businesses are only as unique as the buildings they occupy. The businesses located in the Whistle Stop Mall, which range from restaurants to insurance to retail shops, all have one thing in common, they are all housed in a building that once served Macon County for decades as Belden Electric Cord Products factory.
