WGRZ reports a Dollar General is planned for the site at 2250 Niagara Falls Boulevard.

"The Broadway Group — a real estate development arm of deep discount retailer, Dollar General, paid $425,000, county records indicate," reports WGRZ.

The building that housed the Shannon Pub will be torn down to make way for the new Dollar General.

"The Broadway Group has filed plans with the Town of Tonawanda Building Department to demolish the 5,116-square-foot building, constructed in 1967, and replace it with a 9,100-square-foot Dollar General. The project carries a $2 million development price tag," according to WGRZ.

The owner of the former Shannon Pub, Kevin Townsell, is getting ready to launch his next venture, Buffalo's Hofbrauhaus.

Buffalo Rising recently posted an update, saying that Townsell expects to open "in about a month."

The site at 190 Scott Street is the the former Upstate Milk Co-Operative and Bison Chip Dip plant. The new Hofbrauhaus will be across from the Lofts @ Elk Terminal and The Fairmont mixed-use complex.

Buffalo Rising noted that recently, a maypole had been erected outside of the restaurant building.
