WALWORTH, N.Y. (WROC) — A representative with Byrne Dairy confirmed to News 8 Tuesday that the company is looking to build a “gas and convenience” location in Walworth.
The over 4,000 sq. ft. site would be coming to 1828 Penfield-Walworth Road.
The project has no timeline yet, as a traffic study is underway, and the project has to go through multiple public meetings.
Walworth Town Supervisor Mike Donalty provided this statement:
We welcome the opportunity to add Byrne Dairy to our local business directory and look forward to partnering with them and giving our residents and visitors more retail options. They are a regional family-owned business with a record of giving back to the communities they locate in and our Town will benefit greatly from their presence. The recently completed Comprehensive Plan recommends that the Town “foster a business-friendly environment” in the Walworth Hamlet, and we hope that the addition of Byrne Dairy will be the impetus for additional businesses to look to Walworth for expansion. Our goal is to allow controlled mixed-use development of the 441 corridor and the Walworth Hamlet that will attract more residents and visitors to the area, instead of being the “drive-through” we now see.
