SALYERSVILLE – After a year of planning and coordination, a new store is well on its way to coming to Royalton.
Last week Victoria Doucette, the president of the Royalton Trail Town Committee, announced that construction is set to begin this week on Royalton location of a Dollar General.
Crews expect to turn the building over to Dollar General by May 30, with the store opening tentatively set for the first week in June.
The new store will employ six to 10 local citizens and will be located in the Rondal Reed festival bottom, though Doucette said the construction will not negatively affect the upcoming Royalton Trail Town events.
“I feel that Royalton being a trail town helped make them look at Royalton as a store site,” Doucette said. “Royalton has a long way to go, but’s come a long way.”
