Major improvements are underway at the Southgate shopping center on Cass Street in Corinth. Workers with Village Roofing on Friday were installing an energy-efficient roof over Belk and the new Sears Hometown Store. This upgrade is reportedly the start of a complete overhaul of the shopping center, which is owned by Village Properties. The Southgate shopping center is adjacent to U.S. Highway 72, which has average annual daily traffic of around 24,000 vehicles, according to the Mississippi Department of Transportation.
