Ask 13: Dairy Queen or Dollar General in Fairview?


    "Any idea what is being built at the intersection of Highway 74A and Cane Creek Road in Fairview?" Michael Goldsmith wrote to Ask 13.

    Construction on a busy mountain highway has local folks asking lots of questions.

    Fairview is a tight-knit community in southeast Buncombe County. And when a local landmark was torn down, it caught may people's attention, including Michael Goldsmith's.

    "Any idea what is being built at the intersection of Highway 74A and Cane Creek Road in Fairview?" Goldsmith wrote to Ask 13.

    And then Zachary Greiner sent News 13 this message.

    "Some people, including me, think it's going to be a Dairy Queen, and some people think it's going to be a Dollar General."

    The lot that was home to a small office building for years has been cleared. Sorry, but there will be no Dairy Queen there.

    Dollar General confirmed it is building a store at 1507 Charlotte Highway. The store's grand opening is slated for this summer.

    The store will employ between six and 10 people. If you're interested in a job, click here to learn more.
