New stores are moving in to the Heart of Florida.  Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ’n Biscuits opens today in Gainesville on Archer Road, where Cody's Original Roadhouse once stood.  The chicken chain makes its debut in Alachua County and will employ about 55 people.  Ocala is getting set for a boon of gas stations and convenience stores.  Wawa Convenience Stores has plans to build 4 facilities in Marion County (Pine & SW 10th St, SR 40 near I-75, Maricamp & SE 24th St & Silver Springs Blvd & 36th Avenue) and Race Trac convenience stores will open two  stores (Hwy 27 & NW 35th Ave Rd. & Hwy 441 & SW 32nd St.). These gas station deals are mostly in the planning stages with construction to begin once given the green light.
