BIZ BUZZ: Family plans to open gun shop

Delphi tea house reopens; medical clinic expands hours.

ROYAL CENTER — Work is under way to open a gun shop just north of Royal Center.

Mark and Jann Byers and their daughters Jayme and Kelsey Byers plan to open the shop by summer, Mark Byers said.

The family recently applied for a zoning variance to open the small retail store at 7449 N. Royal Center Pike, where they plan to sell bait and tackle in addition to firearms and gun supplies. Cass County Board of Zoning Appeals approved the variance Feb. 24.

The land had been zoned for agricultural use.

"We hope to be up and going this summer," Mark Byers said. But first, he's applied for a federal permit to sell guns commercially, a process he expects will take another two months.

He anticipates calling the store Byers' Gun Shop.

"It's something I've been wanting to do for quite some time," Mark Byers said, who's nearing retirement. "I just like guns."

TEA HOUSE REOPENS IN DELPHI

DELPHI — After about a six weeks' hiatus, Garden Gate Tea House has reopened in its new location along West Franklin Street in Delphi.

The tea house closed just after Christmas at its former location in the Delphi Opera House building to make way for renovations taking place there this year. It reopened at 101 W. Franklin St. in mid-February.

Hours at the tea house are now 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.

Staff at the tea house may be reached at 765-564-4832.

SMALL FABRICATING SHOP EXPANDING

MT Fabricating on Cass County's east side is expanding, according to a company spokesman.

Marcus Zartman said the company is adding machinery on land at 1580 N. 800 East. The land had been zoned for agricultural use, but the Cass County Board of Zoning Appeals on Feb. 24 approved a variance to allow the manufacturing use.
