This week workers from RE Store began deconstructing the former Community Connections building on the corner of East Chestnut and North Forest streets to make way for the parking lot expansion. Once that is complete, work will begin putting in retaining walls and extra parking spaces for the store, which is at 1220 N. Forest St.
