Plans for a Dollar General store in the Bohners Lake area of the Town of Burlington have been put on hold after the Planning and Zoning Commission tabled all items related to the proposal at a recent meeting.

Dollar General, which looks to build a 9,100-square-foot store, has targeted a 6.7-acre parcel zoned R-4 residential just north of Hunny Tree minimart along McHenry Street.

The proposed store is among the top stories in this week’s edition of the Burlington Standard Press.

Copies of the newspaper will be on sale at local retail outlets on Thursday. Subscribers will receive their copies with Thursday’s mail. To arrange for weekly delivery click here: SUBSCRIBE
