Katama General Store Plans Demolition and Makeover

The Katama General Store may be headed into its final summer as the familiar red outpost on the road to South Beach. Owners Jackie and Doug Korell hope to demolish the 1958 building and replace it with a larger barn-style building in the fall.

“I’ve been dreaming of this for years,” Mrs. Korell said on Tuesday, standing in the dirt parking lot behind the store, near a small trailer that serves as an office, and two walk-in refrigerators. The idea is to reconfigure most of the property, with 25 new parking spots and a larger, two-story building with room for storage, offices an other amenities.
