      The lot is currently being prepped to start building the foundation of the store, which town members say will be great for the economy.

      Public Service Technician with Doerun's City Hall John Walters says the town is pretty excited because any growth during this economy, especially with a store the size of family dollar is a big deal for a small town like Doerun.
