WILSON – A Buffalo firm received final approval Wednesday to build a new Dollar General in the village of Wilson. The village's Zoning Board of Appeals granted a variance to allow Creative Structures Services to build a 9,100-square-foot building on 1.1 acres at 684 Lake St.

Deputy Mayor Bernard “Bernie” Leiker said, “It's great. This will be good for our community.” He said construction will begin “as soon as the weather breaks.”

Dollar General is a Goodlettsville, Tenn.-based corporation with 10,000 stores in 40 states, posting $14.8 billion in sales last year, according to its website.
