The Dollar General store on Fifth Avenue and East Overland is relocating,
City Planner Annie Folck confirmed to KNEB News Wednesday that a new Dollar General store is in the initial stages of construction at 9th and East Overland across from Roosevelt elementary.
Folck says she is excited about the development because boarded up houses and a deteriorating former Zesto restaurant building were torn down to make way for the new store. Folck doesn’t know when the company expects to have the new store open, but construction of the building itself will start immediately after the groundwork is done.
Dollar General has its 5th Avenue building up for sale or lease.
