04 - 20 - 2010 A.J. Peachey’s & Sons announce rebuilding plans
(LS) Third time’s a charm for a family-owned business that has had to build & rebuild a popular tourist spot in Belleville. A.J. Peachey’s & Sons, who built up a strong business saw a fire destroy half of that over 15 years ago, will build again–this time from the ground up–after a 2nd fire leveled the 55-y/o franchise. After a lot of serious considerations, the family felt it could not turn its back on a community that so overwhelmed them with appreciation. Rebecca Peachey told The Sentinel that she had no idea her family’s store had such an impact on so many lives. Temporary buildings are planned to be in place in days & work will begin soon to rebuild the popular Big Valley icon.
