SOUTH BEND — Ancon Construction is beginning a renovation project in South Bend at a building that will become the new home of Purple Porch Co-op.

The project was designed by Kil Architecture, according to a press release from Ancon Construction. The project includes a complete interior renovation that will include a cafe, an overhaul to the outside appearance of the building and street side bistro seating areas.

Purple Porch Co-op is a cooperative store that sells local and sustainably produced food in downtown South Bend. Once construction is complete, the new location will feature local and organic foods, both raw and prepared, full time.
