Road side store

Asked June 11, 2019, 12:08 PM EDT

How do I go about opening a small little roadside store. Do I need a permit and we're would I get one? Can i use a small shed? What can I sell and what can't I? I don't want to sell food, just ice, water, batterys, paper towels, sunscreen, etc. I have two swimming holes near me. It would only be open the summer months.

You have a couple of options, you can contact Jeff Hermesch at the Purdue Extension Office out at the Fairgrounds and he will walk you through the state and local loopholes...or you can contact the Plan Commission Office and take it from there. I would start with Jeff if I were you. Good luck.
