Byrne Dairy Endwell Store May Open Sooner Than Expected
Site work has gotten underway for a Byrne Dairy & Deli store on Watson Boulevard in the town of Union.
The Endwell site had been vacant in recent years. A building that once housed a Grand Union supermarket and then a Warehouse Carpet Outlet store was demolished six years ago.
The Syracuse-based Byrne Dairy acquired the property this spring from Thomas Mazzanoble.
Byrne Dairy vice president Christian Brunelle on Tuesday said the Endwell store now is expected to open in early October. That's a few weeks earlier than previously announced.
Brunelle said Byrne Dairy closed on the purchase of the Whitney Point property the company will use to open a store in northern Broome County. That site is located on Route 11 at River Road.
Byrne Dairy opened its first Binghamton-area store in Endicott last month. The Endwell store will be about the same size at the Endicott operation.
Brunelle said the store planned for Whitney Point will be about 900 square feet larger than the other Broome County locations. He said the Whitney Point store will have a car wash and a separate diesel fuel island. That unit is expected to open early next year.
