The former Lane Home Furnishings store on McCullough Boulevard in Tupelo has a new tenantOld Lane store

It’s Northstar Church of Saltillo, which is opening a second campus at the old Lane spot.

Michael  Bowers, the pastor of maturity at Northstar, said the Tupelo church will open Easter Sunday.

That’s a key date for Northstar, which first opened on Easter Sunday 2006.

Bowers said the Saltillo church has a large following from west Tupelo, Belden, Pontotoc and New Albany, and the Lane store was the perfect spot to set up a second campus.

Work is being done to build classroom spaces for the children. The front of the building will house the church cafe, and the back warehouse area is being converted to be the worship area.
