YORK-Another new tenant may be headed to the Kingsgate Green Shopping Center on Waller Mill Road.

On February 9, the York County Planning Commission will hear a request for a special use permit to allow for a wholesale trade establishment with outdoor storage at 118 Waller Mill Rd. Locke Supply Company, a plumbing, electrical, and HVAC product distributor, has filed the request.

It appears Locke Supply Company wants to occupy a portion of the former K-Mart building in the shopping center as well as what used to be K-mart’s outdoor garden area. The remainder of the old K-Mart store was renovated and reopened as an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet in 2021. Ashley Furniture also previously announced plans to open a location in the shopping complex.

Locke Supply Company began in Oklahoma in 1955. The distributor currently has 180 locations in seven states. There are seven stores in Virginia, including two in Richmond and one in Norfolk.

York County Planning Commission will meet at 7pm February 9 at York Hall, 301 Main St.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
