Business projects taking shape in Havelock

McClenton said details on moving the merchandise from the old store to the new one have yet to be worked out. He said he expects the new store to open in early June.

Just down the street, foundation work is being completed for a new 8,320 square-foot Family Dollar store, which is going up next to Friendly Pawn on West Main Street. That store is expected to open sometime during the summer but a specific date was not available.

Further west, Gary Baldree, owner of Baldree’s Tire of Havelock, said that work is coming along on a new location for his business, which is moving across Catawba Road to a spot next to Mario’s Pizza at the end of the Westbrooke Shopping Center.

“Look out,” Baldree said. “It’s going to happen pretty quick.

“We are supposed to be pouring concrete any day and then putting up steel. They have had some bad weather but they are working through it.”

The new garage will be 10 feet wider and deeper than the current one.

“It’s going to be pretty much like what we’ve got, just a little bit bigger,” Baldree said. “I’d say in a couple of months we should be in.”
