The sign announcing “Renovations in Progress” on the front door of Boomer’s Convenience Store at 13801 W. State Highway 29 doesn’t begin to tell what’s planned for the longtime Liberty Hill business.
It’s nothing short of getting a facelift. The store is going to be completely demolished making room for a brand new building that will double the size of the present structure to nearly 3,800 square feet.
“People are going to be real happy when it’s all done,” said Zeshan Janmohad, whose family has owned the business since 1998.
Janmohad said it had been anticipated that the store would have to be closed for 30 days. However, accommodations were made within the store including relocating the refrigerated coolers to the front so construction could begin and not interrupt service to customers for any major period of time.
“We will only have about two weeks of down time around the end of March depending on the weather,” Janmohad said. “But our customers can expect many new things when it’s finished.”
Among the new features, Boomer’s will add a deli with a seating area and a drive-thru window. A beer cave is also in the works for the new store.
In the meantime, no heat, stripped walls and crowded aisles are minute inconveniences for what is to come. One thing not likely to change is Boomer’s signature friendly service.
