A pet store and grooming center will replace a longtime seafood shop near the Lee Heights Shops, according to county permits.
American Seafood at 4550 Lee Highway closed on December 31 last year after nearly 35 years in business.
And while none of its signs have been removed yet, permits indicate that work will be done to completely renovate the building. County planning staff approved the business license for the new pet store on September 12.
The Lee Heights Shops have seen some turnover in recent times, with long-time local stores Bradshaw’s Children’s Shoes and Lemon Twist closing late last year.
Lemon Twist was replaced by women’s clothing and accessories store Lemoncello Boutique. Bradshaw’s still has not been replaced.
