Dollar General is coming to the City of Plattsburgh’s South End.
And it is a large one at that.
The store will be located at the Lavin Candy Co. property at 4989 South Catherine Street.
The City of Plattsburgh’s Planning Board approved the plans submitted by Primax Properties, a real estate investment company based in Charlotte, N.C.
Work is expected to start in April with the demolition of the Lavin Candy building.
Construction on the new Dollar General store would start shortly after and possibly be open that summer.
The store will be about 9,100 square feet, which is roughly 2,000 square feet larger than the typical Dollar General.
Dollar General, based in Tennessee, is the largest small-box retailer in the country with sales of $14.8 billion last year.
Dollar General is located in more than 40 states, with local stores in Peru, Rouses Point and other North Country locations among its 10,000 stores.
Dollar General has 11 distribution centers with a workforce of around 94,000.
The first store was launched in 1955 in Kentucky.
