The Dollar General being developed at the entrance to Lake Junaluska along U.S. 19 is taking shape.

Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center sold the 1.8 acre site to a private developer for $420,000 a year ago.

The strategically-located site is the crossroads of Waynesville and Maggie Valley, and sits squarely on the doorstep of Lake Junaluska’s main entrance.

The building on the property — the famous and fondly-remembered home of Granny’s Chicken Palace — was torn down in early June.

The newest Dollar General will make nine in the county in a five-mile radius alone — two in Maggie Valley, one on Jonathan Creek and one in Iron Duff.

The 1.8-acre property was purchased by WNC ESB Investments which flipped a 1.3-acre portion of the tract in May for $390,000 to a developer specializing in Dollar Generals.

The county building permit lists the Dollar General as a $470,000 construction project.

The parcel next to the Dollar General will be the site of a Dunkin.

The Haywood County Development Serviced Department has issued a grading permit for the work, but no building plans have yet been submitted.
