The town of Springport held a planning board meeting in January to consider the approval for a Dollar General Store along Route 90, across from Route 326, on a nearly two-acre lot.
Dollar General has over 14,000 stores in 44 states, with surrounding area stores located in Weedsport, Port Byron and Auburn.
On Jan. 17, Caryn Miodzionowski, from Bohler Engineering, on behalf of Primax Properties, proposed building a roughly 9,000 square foot Dollar General Store. Miodzionowski stated that the store would carry a wide range of products including dry goods, general merchandise, brand name products, and a small grocery section, according to Springport's planning board meeting minutes.
Springport Supervisor David Schenck said in a phone interview, that the town "really hasn't done anything yet." He explained it was "an interesting situation" because the town didn't know anything about the project until it was filed with the planning board.
