Dollar General coming to Peru just off the downtown district

Posted by wlpo on November 2, 2015

Make way for a Dollar General in Peru.

What’s now the city works building at the corner of 6th and Peoria Streets will be torn down and become a Dollar General. The city is selling the site for a dollar with the understanding that demolition of the public works building ends next summer and the new Dollar General is ready to go by the end of next year.

Economic Development Director Bob Vickrey says the company looked at Route 6 but there were issues with loading trucks. Under plans along Peoria and 6th Street, no delivery trucks are allowed on 6th.

Landscaping will go up on the west side of the store along with a privacy fence along both the west and north sides of the building.
