MOUNT VERNON — Rural King will open its new Mount Vernon store in the old Kmart location in the Knox Village Square on Coshocton Avenue at 7 a.m. Saturday.

Staff has been busy getting things ready, and mowers, kayaks and other items are already lined up against the front wall of the building.
Assistant Manager Dave Alt said the opening this week will be a “soft” opening and the grand opening will take place Aug. 26. The week of the grand opening will feature daily specials.

And, of course, from day one there will be the store’s signature free popcorn and coffee available.
