Family Dollar store coming to Gering

Construction on a new Family Dollar retail store in Gering will begin soon. City Engineer Paul Snarr says the 8,400 square foot building and parking lot will be built on 10th Street just south of the new Platte Valley Bank building currently under construction.

Family Dollar closed on the property last week, and three homes that are currently on the property will be demolished after negotiations were completed with the owners. Snarr says Family Dollar will invest $660,000 in the project and are expected to employ at least 15 to 20 people.

Triple C Development will manage the construction and Snarr says they will use local sub-contractors.
