'Floor Trader' Move Means Store Ownership in Ballwin

The new retail and service outlet is expected to complete its move out of Manchester later this summer.

A new retail outlet for flooring being constructed west of Ballpark Drive on Manchester Road is scheduled for completion in roughly 4 to 8 weeks, when franchise operators of Floor Trader in Manchester will move their operation west into the City of Ballwin.

The new location for means the business's management will own the new facility, Ballwin City Planer Tom Aiken said Tuesday, opposed to the current store located at 14336 Manchester Road which is rented.

Aiken said he expected the project to be completed later this summer, noting that installation of the new facility's roof and other infrastructure is still being completed.

"It's a pretty simple project so my guess is it'll probably (open) around July. Somewhere in that time frame," Aiken said.

In addition to Floor Trader, which will be located immediately west of near the Ballwin Athletic Association, the project includes a separate building with space for up to six businesses, to be located between Floor Trader and . A project manager on site Tuesday said he did not believe those spaces were rented yet.

I don't understand why Ballwin would allow the flooring building to be built so close to Manchester Road. It blocks eastbound traffic from seeing Preiss Cleaners.

It doesn't look like there's much space left for parking on that property, either.
