Dollar General withdraws Martinsburg application

MARTINSBURG — Dollar General has pulled its application to build a store on a Glenfield property on State Route 12.

The company deemed the 2.2-acre site unsuitable after realizing the soil of the plot belonging to town Supervisor Terrence J. Thisse is shale-heavy and not suitable for the 10,760-foot store intended for construction, as reported at the town’s planning board meeting earlier this month by the company, according to town Clerk Mary Martin.
