Two new stores are being built in Goshen and New Paris

GOSHEN — By the time the snow flies, Goshen and New Paris should have two new stores about ready to open.

A Dollar General store is being built along the west side of Ind. 15 at C.R. 46 in New Paris. On the northside of Kercher Road at Waymouth Boulevard on Goshen’s southside, a gasoline station/convenience store with a Subway restaurant is being constructed.

“We developed that and we are building it,” said Goshen developer Adlai Schrock, owner of Schrock Commercial, about the Kercher Road store.

The gasoline station/convenience store will be owned by National Oil & Gas of Bluffton, Schrock said.

Schrock said the store is the first to be built in a new commercial subdivision that was approved by Goshen zoning officials in June.

“The project is called Park North and this project is called Park North Food Mart,” he said.

Schrock said there will be five or six total commercial lots developed at the location. He said retail stores or light industrial businesses are allowed by the zoning.

He said his construction crews have a goal of having the building ready by Dec. 1. On Wednesday they were busy installing pre-constructed roof trusses.

Dollar General

The new Dollar General store in New Paris will be located on the southwest corner of the busy Ind. 15, C.R. 46 intersection. Crews have so far moved dirt to prepare the site for concrete work.

New Paris Partners LLC of Liberty, Ind. is constructing the $500,000 store.

“We are a preferred developer for Dollar General,” said Shane Coffman, owner of New Paris Partners.

He said his company recently built the new Dollar General in Wakarusa.

He said the goal is to have the building completed by Oct. 1.

A spokeswoman for Dollar General said she could not comment on the store until the company completes its “due diligence” process.

Dollar General has been expanding rapidly, according to the company’s quarterly report. The corporation plans to open 625 new stores this year and remodel or relocate 575 others.

According to the company, it prefers locating stores in areas with media household income less than $75,000 with a population of at least 4,500 people.
