The Dollar General store in Marquette Plaza may be expanding.
The topic was discussed at Monday’s South Milwaukee Plan Commission meeting, when commissioners heard about a proposal to expand the current store at 1131 Marquette Ave. from 8,000 square feet to just shy of 15,000.
Commissioners decided no changes to the conditional use permit were necessary since it’s a tenant expansion, and that the city engineer’s office could approve the change.
The store will take over the space currently occupied by the Marquette Plaza thrift store, which will move to the space formerly occupied by several restaurants.
The expanded location would be larger than your typical Dollar General and even bigger than a larger-format Dollar General under test, according to this story in Supermarket News.
