(La Porte County, IN) - On Wednesday night the La Porte County Commissioners gave their blessing for a new Dollar General Market store in Springfield Township. The intended location is on U.S. 20 just east of State Road 39.
Tom Cowan is with Zaremba Group, a real estate developer representing Dollar General. He told the commissioners that two years ago the company had planned to open a standard 9,100 square-foot store on one parcel along U.S. 20, but were delayed. Now they want to rezone an adjacent smaller parcel, bringing the location’s footprint to about two acres, and construct a 12,480-square-foot store.
The Dollar General Market is a new trend in the company’s business, with larger stores that feature fresh food, produce, and more frozen food selections.
No timeline was discussed for the project.
