A n Advance Auto Parts store should open tentatively in Granville this December.
The company that owns 110 Quaker Street, the lot behind Price Chopper Plaza slated to become an Advance Auto Parts, has obtained a demolition permit from the town of Granville.
The town board heard word from its ordinance officer, Russ Bronson, last week that Schuyler Companies, which also owns the Price Chopper Plaza, now has a permit. He said demolition could take place at any time.
The national auto chain has more than 3,500 stores nationwide and two already in Washington County in Hudson Falls and Greenwich. The proposed location is next to Price Chopper and directly behind a row of homes along Quaker Street.
Schuyler Companies, which owns the Quaker St. property, 110 Quaker St. – LP, is the same company that owns Price Chopper Plaza. Advance Auto Parts will likely lease the property from the Schuyler-owned company.
Shelly Whitaker, a spokesperson for the company who confirmed the tentative opening, said the chain is opening 200 stores throughout the United States this year.
