'Big R' getting a new Elkhart location

ELKHART, Ind. -- A long-time vacant store in Elkhart won't be empty much longer.

Today, Concord Mall manager Bob Thatcher announced "Big R" is moving into the old K-Mart on South Main. The building has been empty for almost 10 years.

The Elkhart Planning Commission still needs to approve the plan, but renovations have already begun. 

'Big R' is expected to open early next year.
