FAIRLAWN (WSLS 10) - A new business is coming to Pulaski County and it's bringing about 80 new jobs with it.

Rural King, which calls itself "America's Farm & Home Store," is taking over the old Kmart building in Fairlawn.

This week, workers began renovations on the 88,000 square feet of space that has been vacant for more than 10 years.

This will be the second Rural King in Virginia. The first one is set to open in Front Royal this September.

The company started in the 1960s and has 85 stores across the country.

The new Rural King is expected to open this spring.
