The Limestone village board has unanimously approved allowing a Dollar General store to be contructed on property near the water tower on Illinois Route 17. Only one citizen at the meeting protested the idea.

Far from a certainty, Dollar General is still in the process of deciding to open the store in Limestone and has made no commitment. A final decision should be made by early 2020.

Dollar General has a location in Herscher as well as several in the Kankakee area.
