Ryans inside
The inside of the old Ryans building across from Walmart has been gutted in preparation for a Shoe Dept Encore store that will offer thousands of shoes.
Folks who have noticed all the vehicles parked outside the old Ryan’s building have been asking me about the status of that renovation project. They are curious when Shoe Dept Encore will open its doors in McMinnville.When I stopped by Friday morning and talked to some workers on site, I was told the company is shooting for Jan. 9 as an opening date. But the workers were quick to add that date is very optimistic thinking, especially with the holidays approaching.I don’t know if a realistic timetable can be given at this point because the building is completely gutted.
