Donelson Business News
Over the past couple of years, Donelson’s renewed economic development has shown promise and progress. The redevelopment of The Crossings shopping center bringing new restaurants and businesses, to sidewalk infrastructure improvements, and new businesses in the community have been welcomed signs of an improving overall economy and renewed investment in Donelson.
The new life and vitality at the old Two Rivers Ford building when Ace Hardware moved in to the space along with Phat Bites, which became host for the weekly Hip Donelson Community Farmer’s Market, has been a real destination for both neighbors and visitors this summer. The Market will return next May. A wonderful addition to the Market has been the CedarStone Bank Entertainment Stage. I’m thrilled to have been involved in helping book music and my thanks go to CedarStone for their sponsorship that has allowed us to make that happen. You may have noticed that construction began recently for their new branch at the intersection of Donelson Pike and Lebanon Pike. It is a welcome sight to see on a piece of land that has been empty for many years. Just a few months prior, Wilson Bank & Trust opened their doors to a brand new branch on Donelson Pike next to JVI Secret Gardens.
