There was a White Store on the corner of Merchant Dr and Clinton Hwy up to 2003. Tim Graham (Graham Corporation) bought the property, demolished the White Store building, and built a retail strip, called Merchants Corner, there.
Graham owns land here and there in NW Knox and over in the Washington Pike area. His big boondoggle was a big retail complex he was going to develop around the Expo Center site. That was supposed to break ground 7-8 years ago but never got anywhere. He still is trying to sell the old Kroger building there.
