It’s so exciting to see anything new being built in Chester. The enormous new Chester Charter School for the Arts building with its huge windows and modern design is going to be one of the nation’s top new schools when it opens in September.

I thought the little building being built next to it was going to be their administration building. I was so wrong.

Today, the signage went up on the little building that could. Sharing the huge city block with the new school will be a brand new Dollar General store.

Obviously, there’s no formula to limit the number of dollar stores that can be squeezed into a 4.8 square mile city.

I’ll keep you posted on the ribbon cutting date.
