Approved was an 0ff-premises only request from Terry Wayne Harris Jr., operating as Ryan’s Ridge Top Market, 1624 Shelbyville Highway, Petersburg. Harris of Moore County intends to operate a convenience/gas store there. He still has some zoning and building permits to get accomplished but is hoping for a spring opening for his business, which he has said is greatly needed in the area because there aren’t any of that nature now.
