That new Dollar General across from Bo Manor High and Middle schools, is nearly completed.
As of last week all that was lacking were electrical, health review, fire marshal, final building, plumbing, HVAC, and grading inspections. All of those are the norm for new construction.
This project will also need to be inspected by the State Highway Administration. The building needed SHA approval for access and right-of-way. The building, at 2744 Augustine Herman Highway, South Chesapeake City, measures 9,100 square feet. It has two and a half bathrooms, a manager's office, and is getting both water and sewer from Chesapeake City.
Dollar General has recently expanded in Cecil County. Within the few years, stores in the chain have been built in Rising Sun, Conowingo, and Cecilton.
There are two Dollar General stores in North East and one in Elkton.
