The Fredonia Village Board last week approved a request by Dollar General to reduce the size and number of parking spaces it will need at  the southwest corner of Highway 57 and Fredonia Avenue.

Dollar General plans to open a store at 111 Fredonia Ave. and tear down the dilapidated former day care center there.

The property has been vacant for several years and has been the object of ongoing complaints from residents and village officials, who call it an eyesore.

Dollar General required a variance from the village to reduce the size of parking spaces to nine feet wide and 20 feet deep and to reduce the number of spaces from 36 to 30.

Their request was approved unanimously by village trustees.

In past years, the site has served as a private residence, restaurant and tavern as well as a day care center.

Dollar General is a chain convenience store that sells items, including some groceries, at a lower price compared to other retailers, but — despite its name — is not a dollar store.

The only other convenience store in town is Casey’s, a gas station and convenience store combination.

The store’s site plan and engineering plans have already been approved.
