Dillons announces new Salina store

The newest Dillons supermarket and fuel center will be built at Ohio and Cloud in Salina, company officials announced Tuesday.

Construction is slated to begin in the fall on a new 76,000-square-foot facility to replace the current Dillons at 2012 S. Ohio in Salina, built in 1971.

The new store will feature expanded departments, wider aisles and the company's new layout. The new store should create at least 50 new jobs in Salina, company officials said.
