MOUNT VERNON — The city’s Board of Zoning Appeals Wednesday approved, on a 4-0 vote, the granting of a conditional use permit for Alonzo “Bo” Thompson, owner of Thompson Memorials and Countertops, to locate a showroom at 333 Wooster Road. The site formerly housed a veterinary clinic and then a massage therapy business, but has been vacant for an extended time.

The property is zoned office-institutional, but “funeral homes and related facilities” are permitted as conditional uses.

Thompson already has operations in Perrysville, Wooster, Millersburg, Massillon and Magnolia.
