Work is progressing at 24th and Locust in Quincy with the new County Market Express convenience store. Workers last week raised the old store building in preparation for turning it into a parking lot and gas pump area. Workers had been building the framework for the actual store for weeks now and that work is also continuing.

According to officials at Niemann Foods, Incorporated, the owner of the County Market and County Market Express stores, the Express store at 24th and Locust has a target date to tentatively open by mid August.
