Dollar General rendering

This is an artist’s rendering of the Dollar General store proposed for 1600 22nd Ave.

There will be no shortage of dollar stores on the city’s north side.

Dollar General will seek approval from the city Plan Commission on Thursday to put another store location on a vacant lot at 1600 22nd Ave., just north of Van’s Gas Service and across the street from Shenanigan’s Liquors.

It will be the third Dollar General in Kenosha and one of three dollar stores within a one-mile radius, joining Dollar Tree, 2801 18th St., and Family Dollar, 2027 22nd Ave.

The 9,350-square-foot building required several exterior modifications to meet conditions of approval set on July 18.

City officials required a brick exterior and window awnings on all sides of the building because the front faces 22nd Avenue and the rear is within sight of the county bike trail and a residential neighborhood.

“I did request and receive changes to the physical appearance of the building,” said Ald. Holly Kangas, who represents the district where the business would be located.

The $750,000 building is being designed by Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc. of Lisle, Ill. The store is expected to employ about eight to 12 workers.
