Goshen's Mega Plaza sold in auction

GOSHEN, Ind. -- An empty building will soon have new tenants.

The old Mega Plaza in Goshen sold Wednesday at auction. The building is about 60,000 square feet and has been home to several commercial stores, a rodeo and most recently an indoor soccer facility.

Wednesday Elijah’s Fire International Church gave the highest bid. Church leaders plan to renovate the building complete with sanctuary for their steadily growing congregation.

"We've all had certain things on our mind of what we can do,” said Jim Fernow.” “We've all had anticipations. We came here knowing that this property would become ours. We really did. We had the faith for that."

The building was appraised for more than $450,000, but the church got it for just over $152,000.
