Local businesses are on the move

Comprehensive Rehab, currently located at 402 Hwy. 52 Bypass East, Lafayette, will be moving to 505 Ellington Drive, Lafayette, next to Factory Connection, across from the post office.

Buffy Roark, Co-Owner and Administrator commented, “We did not have the building up for sale. An opportunity arose and we felt like it was a good opportunity to move. People from Strong Tower Church approached us in October about purchasing this building. We didn’t get serious about moving until November. We were fortunate about finding the new space. Renovations are going to be minimal because rooms were already where tanning beds used to be and the center is open which is what we need for our walking track. We will still offer our wellness program and our outpatient and physical therapy. We were also concerned for our patients during the afternoon traffic with accidents, at our current location, so the opportunity arose and we just thought it would be a good move for us. We have been in the current location for 6 years.”

Comp Rehab is planning on being closed January 6th and 9th and open operations on January 10, 2017.

Jeremy Meador, Youth Pastor at Strong Tower Church said, “We were nervous about our lease ending at the school, we never imagined we would be able to find a facility that size that we could purchase. It has been great for us.”

They are planning on remodeling the interior of the building. Meador stated, “We will have an auditorium and a lobby. We will have more space for the kids. It will be really nice when all the renovations are done. With this new location we will be able to do more for the community.

Meador said, “We won’t know if we will be able to open up as soon as our lease is up, it will depend on how well the renovations are going. We won’t have any weekends where we won’t have service. We could meet in the Westmoreland location, or we have had other churches offer us space to have services.

“Because of the new location we will be able to do a lot for the community. That will hopefully benefit everyone.”
