More than a year ago, the Whitehall Village Board sent a letter to Tennessee-based Dollar General, requesting that its store on Route 4 be expanded to include a full-service grocery store, something Whitehall does not have now.

A grocery store has yet to materialize, and in fact Dollar General never responded to the village’s inquiry.

Village planning board chairman David Molenaar said while the matter isn’t necessarily a dead issue, residents shouldn’t be holding their breath.

“It comes up but nobody is planning to do anything,” he said.

Molenaar, together with former mayor Ken Bartholomew and current mayor Phil Smith, spearheaded the appeal last year to Dollar General.

Unfortunately for Whitehall residents, the road to a grocery isn’t as straight-forward as they might expect; Molenaar said the completion of a comprehensive plan dictating what the future of Whitehall is must take precedence.
