Dougherty Co. Commissioners approve building of Family Dollar

Posted: Updated:
DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

A new retail store is coming to Dougherty County. On Monday county commissioners gave the go ahead for the construction of a Family Dollar at the corner of Gillionville Drive and Weymouth Drive.

County officials say the new store could open as soon as in a few months, and bring about 8 to 10 new jobs.

"This company has been looking for site on Gillionville and had previously looked at another site nearby and that did not work out and this site would be an amenity for local residences,"says senior planner Rozanne Braswell.

The next step will be getting building permits approved.
