The Lewiston Planning and Code Enforcement office has approved a permit for the construction of a new Dollar General store at 11 Dave’s Way, a newly designated street that is described as the existing entrance/driveway to what was the Promenade Mall. The entire property was previously 855 Lisbon St. and has since been subdivided, resulting in the creation of a number of new lots requiring frontage. This resulted in a private drive that needed to be named.

The building is listed as just under 11,000 square feet and the estimated cost of construction is put at $775,000. David Gendron is listed as the applicant and the owner, with D. Gendron Construction listed as the contractor.

The new Dollar General store is being built next to Advance Auto Parts.
