NORWICH Construction of a new, 7,000 square foot Byrne Dairy convenience store, laundromat and gas station is well underway and city officials announced this week a tentative opening date of June 29.
Sonbyrne Sales, Inc. parent company of Byrne Dairy purchased the four parcels of property located on the corner of Silver and East Main Streets in early December of 2010. In March, construction of the new facility began, with the demolition of the former Bruce Beadle Realty building. Since then, work has continued at a rapid pace, said Mayor Joe Maiurano, and workers on-site Wednesday said the approximately $2 million project is running right on schedule.
Were confident that the new Byrne Dairy will be up and running by the end of June, said Maiurano. This has been a long process and I think everyone involved is excited to see the end result.
