Five properties recently were sold in the Route 62 commercial section of Masury.
Salam J. Elwanni of Hubbard bought the Tony’s Auto Parts property in November for $70,000, and the former South Side Market property next door in December for $90,000, according to the Trumbull County Auditor’s website.
IN LLC of Warren in December bought the brown brick house next to May’s Auto for $140,000, and the commercial building next to it, also for $140,000. In November, the company bought the brown brick building south of the commercial building for $31,000.
Tony’s Auto Parts will close later this year.
“We have an agreement with Greg (Tesoriero) at Tony’s that he can stay there until October to liquidate his inventory, because we don’t want him to lose the money with his inventory,” said Jenetta Christy, co-owner of the Brookfield Drive In and a partner of Elwanni’s.
Tesoriero, who sold the auto parts store property to Elwanni, declined to comment on the sale.
Elwanni, Christy and members of Elwanni’s family are discussing what to do with the two parcels Elwanni has purchased, Christy said.
promo“I don’t wanna prematurely say anything, because we’re waiting on a few things to transpire, but we did purchase the land,” Christy said.
The market building was demolished earlier this month.
The Brookfield Drive In will not be moving from its present location, Christy said.
A letter sent to IN LLC at the address listed on the Trumbull County Auditor’s website was returned marked “no such number.” Dave Wilson, who has a landscaping and car recycling business in the township, houses Wilson AutoPros at 890 S. Irvine, the retail building bought by IN LLC. Wilson declined to comment.
