"Pickerington did not offer Big Lots any tax abatements or incentives to locate in the city"

Then why move to this location?

A kindhearted business move to reduce employees taxes? Really?

My questioned referred to the moves by Bob Evans HQ and Alcatel-Lucent out of Columbus after generous tax incentives were offered by New Albany and Dublin. How was Pickerington able to secure Big Lots without a similar sweetheart deal?

Glad to see the old store filled in.
The additional traffic should help increase the accident rate at or around the intersection(s). I hope that those responsible for traffic movements are proactive on this.

An Ohio company realized they could make money there. It was good business on their part and I am glad no tax abatements etc. were needed.
I always question when a store closes down because it wasn't making enough money. I have seen it happen. A store was making money, paying the employees, showed a profit but not a big enough profit.

No, not employees' taxes - corporations pay local taxes too, and 1.5% of a lot of money is still a lot of money. Not to mention that Pickerington is a much nicer area than most of Columbus.

The auction process is still underway. If your so called rumor held any truth it would have been leaked to the mainstream business media by now. Nice try.

If everything going on, was leaked, the stock would be at the deal price. You can not expect all the details to be leaked.
