Dollar General, the chain of small discount retail outlets with the most stores of its type in the country, has plans for a 10th store in Craven County.

The Craven County Planning Department received a preliminary plat plan on Aug. 1 with drawings for a proposed new store east of Havelock near the intersection of N.C. 101 and Adams Creek Road.

The proposed 9,400-square-foot building on 1.6 acres would be right at the Craven-Carteret county line.

The parcel being considered is the southwest corner of a 17-acre tract owned by Myrtis Penny and has an Adams Creek Road address, but is not right at the Adams Creek Road turn.

A gas station and convenience store owned since 2001 by Paiseer Tawfiq Hehadeh in Carteret County is between the proposed location and Adams Creek Road.

Dollar General Corp. is a publicly traded national discount retailer of brand name and store-branded products. Headquartered in Goodlettsville, Tenn., the company has small stores strategically placed for easy access to rural and metropolitan communities, according to information from the company.

The drawings were submitted for the company by Matt Lowder of Triangle Site Design in Raleigh for Clandon Forest Equity, LLC, also in Raleigh, to Craven Planning Director Don Baumgardner.
