(FREETOWN) – A Dollar General Store is coming to Freetown.
The developer Curt Rafferty of Bowling Green, Kentucky received the go-ahead from the Jackson County Board of Zoning Appeals to build the 10,640-square-foot store on the northeast corner of State Road 135 and Main Street (State Road 58) in Freetown. Construction will begin in early to midsummer.
The store will be built on 0.951 acres, which contains six lots. Two adjacent lots on the north side of the property are vacant. The south side of the building will face Underhill’s property. The only entrance to the store will be off of State Road 135. The cut for that driveway requires state approval.
Project engineer Will McDonough with Corydon-based Paul Primavera and Associates said the store has to be ready to turn over to the Dollar General Store company by November, but it could be completed sooner. Construction typically takes 16 weeks, but it can be must faster with good weather. Once a store is completed, it is leased to Dollar General.
