New Dollar General slated for downtown

Teramore Development has proposed plans to the City of Bainbridge and the Historic Preservation Commission to demolish the old Bainbridge Hardware store on Broad Street to build a Dollar General.

A public hearing for the project is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 22, before the Historic Planning Commission at 6 p.m. at City Hall. The public is welcome to voice any opinions at the meeting.

Teramore Development is seeking a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Historic Preservation Commission to move forward with the project.

Bainbridge Hardware is not currently in business and sits empty.

Teramore Development is also building a Dollar General on Highway 84. The Bainbridge City Council approved the project in a 3-2 vote, with nays coming from councilwomen Glennie Bench and Roslyn Palmer.
