Family Dollar files plans for Eudora store
Eudora is set to get a Family Dollar store.
Family Dollar has filed plans to build a new location along Church Street, near the Dairy Queen.
Eudora City Administrator John Harrenstein said the project would get a hearing at the city planning commission's Sept. 7 meeting. He thinks the project could have all the approvals it needs to procede by early November. Harrenstein said the store is expected to sell some products that Eudora residents currently leave town to purchase. He also said he expects the project to eventually add momentum to the idea of redeveloping the former Nottingham Elementary site into a commercial center. The old elementary school is just across the street from the location.
"I think they will be leading the pack on this," Harrenstein said. "I think their success will lead to more success."
