Dirt work begins on new store location Local shoppers will soon have a new bargain retailer to choose from after work began this week to clear a long-vacant lot for the construction of a Dollar Tree store on South 1st Street. 7B Building & Development, based in Lubbock, is constructing the property and will own it, with a guaranteed long-term lease from Dollar Tree. Kent Davick, representing 7B Building and Development, said his company has extensive dealings with Dollar Tree and parent company Family Dollar. He said he has constructed hundreds of the stores for the nation-wide company. When the project comes to fruition in the spring of 2019, it will see a stand-alone 9,000 square foot building go up on the city’s busiest thoroughfare and a total investment of almost $1 million in Brownfield. BIDC executive director David Partlow said he expects the new business to quickly establish itself as a leading sales tax generator for the community. Partlow said the store would likely be a metal building with an improved front facade.
