Rezoning Request For New Dollar General Store Delayed

A request to rezone a tract of land for a new Dollar General store near Four Oaks has been delayed until at least November.   During their October 6 meeting, Johnston County Commissioners tabled a rezoning request for Dollar General after no one showed up at the meeting to represent the applicant.

Glandon Forest Equity LLC had petitioned the county to rezone a 2.3 acre tract of land at the intersection of Highway 701 South and Keen Road outside of Four Oaks from agricultural-residential to general business.  The parcel is currently vacant and used as farm land.   It is currently owned by Tony Delmon Lee.

Commissioner Jeff Carver made a motion to table the rezoning request until their November 2nd meeting after no one appeared to represent the company.

In July 2020, we reported Dollar General was considering their third location in the Four Oaks area.  If constructed, it would employ between 6 and 10 workers. Dollar General has two other locations in the Four Oaks area at 9817 Highway 210 and 6043 Highway 301 South.
