Ask 13: What is going in the former J&S Cafeteria building?

A once popular cafeteria in the Enka/Candler area closed its doors about a year ago. But now, something is going on at the former J&S Cafeteria location.

"The building of the former J&S of Candler has been gutted, and there's new construction to the building. Can you find out what will be going in?" Raymond Joe Pressley wrote to Ask 13 in a Facebook message.

The old J&S Cafeteria was in the same plaza as Food Lion on Smokey Park Highway. It was in business for 31 years when, last February, the company CEO said it was time to say goodbye.

So what's happening now? Rusty Pulliam, of Pulliam Properties which manages the plaza, said the building is being remodeled to make room for an Ace Hardware. Ace has become a neighborhood alternative to big box hardware businesses. Obviously, it's a growing business, but, no doubt for some, it will never take the place of a J&S Cafeteria.
