A new brakes store could be coming to Beaufort, and it could take the spot of a vacant restaurant.
Brakes for Less submitted a proposal to the city’s planning department to fill the spot formerly occupied by Pizza Hut at 24433 Boundary St., according to the store’s plans.
The building proposal is for the shop to be downstairs with an apartment above.
The design has been preliminarily approved by the city, according to Libby Anderson, director of planning and development services for the city.
There will need to be a final approval for the design. The shop also will have to submit construction designs, Anderson said. After that, demolition of the Pizza Hut could begin.
Anderson did not know a timeline for when work could begin.
