WICHITA — Another new Family Dollar is coming to the market, this time in front of Brints Diner near the northeast corner of Lincoln and Oliver.
Businessman Homer Morgan owns the restaurant and bought the building in front of it a couple of years ago at auction.
He didn’t want the property for himself, but he did want to make sure the entry into Brints remained open.
Morgan says Family Dollar agreed to that.
He also had to get Safeway to sign off on the deal.
Morgan says Safeway was in the area years ago and retained rights to keep another business from selling food there.
“But they signed off because they don’t intend to have anything else,” Morgan says.
He says Family Dollar is moving quickly.
“They’re tearing the old building down.”
Morgan says he’s been told a new building should be up in 120 days.
No one with Family Dollar could immediately be reached for comment.
