Dollar Tree to build in New Richmond

Dollar Tree is coming to New Richmond.

At a special meeting of the New Richmond City Council April 8, the council approved the sale of land next to Maurices (along Richmond Way) to the developer of the dollar store.

According to Mike Darrow, city administrator and utilities manager, plans call for construction yet this year.

"Plans are to have shovels in the ground sometime this spring," he said, "whenever we have spring."

In other economic development news, the city continues to work with several other business prospects. Officials are close to finalizing a letter of intent with a business that plans to locate in the southern portion of the community.
