NAVARRE — A new store is coming to the State Road 87 corridor.

Family Dollar will set shop at the corner of the Turkey Bluff Road. Jason McLarty, a planner with Santa Rosa County development services, said the site plan for the 8,320-square-foot space is being processed and the building plans have been submitted and are under review.

McLarty said the company is moving quicker than most projects, a sign that they are eager to open. Right now there is no estimated time frame for the store's opening, but he said the development order should be completed by the end of the month.

This will be the second Family Dollar in Navarre. The other is across from the main entrance to Holley by the Sea. The area also has two Dollar General locations.

With its proximity to residential communities and Navarre High School, the Family Dollar is a good fit for SR 87, said Judy Morehead, president/CEO of the Navarre Area Chamber of Commerce.

"We are fortunate to have popular and very well-managed stores in our area, with the majority of them located on (U.S. Highway) 98," she said. "Family Dollar is a neighborhood discount store. They are the place you pop in for a gallon of milk or grab that poster board for the class project that is due in the morning. The location on 87 fits the demographic audience that Family Dollar is known for."
