Two new businesses will soon find homes in downtown Conover.
Owner John Cline hopes to open a side-by-side real estate business and restaurant, located at the intersection of West First Street and First Avenue North in downtown Conover.
“Downtown is a great place,” Cline said. “We’re really hoping to bring people to downtown.”
The space was previously Pappy’s Five Point Café.
