BROOKHAVEN — A dumpster with light fixtures, ceiling tiles and other building materials sits in the parking lot in front of the former Rite Aid pharmacy as workers are cleaning out the former TH Perkins Furniture store at 830 Brookway Boulevard and Rite Aid building for new businesses. 

Building inspector David Fearn said he has received building plans from national retailers Five Below and T.J. Maxx for development of the properties. He said he has not received any plans for the former Piggly Wiggly location which is nearby. 

TH Perkins consolidated to just one location at 520 Brookway Boulevard earlier this summer, vacating this building.

Five Below and T.J. Maxx are not the only business related news this week. Fearn said Southern Bone and Joint Specialists in Hattiesburg has plans to open a location in Brookhaven. 

Meanwhile, Huey Magoos looks to have been delayed by weather. All that should be left for the chicken eatery is the pouring of asphalt and concrete on the exterior of the building. It could be August before Huey Magoos is able to open at 110 US51 N.

Cracker Barrel (gas station) closed the store part of its US51 North location but gas pumps were still operational two weeks ago. The company announced it had plans to renovate the former Shipps Flower Shop and open Roadside BBQ/Wine and Spirits according to a banner on the front of the building. Cracker Barrel has not responded to phone calls or inquiries about their plans for Cracker Barrel North or the Roadside BBQ/Wine and Spirits.

AITX completed a $30 million investment through Phase II of its Brookhaven operations yesterday with a ribbon cutting.
