If all goes well, the new Gowell’s Shop ‘n Save building at 440 U.S. 202 in Greene will hold a grand opening Friday. It opened Nov. 11.

The expanded building of about 25,000 square feet is 5,000 square feet more than the old one next to it, store manager Tom Couture said in March.

Demolition of the old building began Nov. 16 to make way for additional parking and a new gas station.

Owner Rick Gowell bought the former IGA in February 2019 and true to his word built a new store on the same lot, and in less than the five years, which he predicted then.
