Dollar General, Advance Auto lead business boom in Canfield

Published: Sun, April 27, 2014 @ 5:37 p.m.

A businessman also has purchased the long-vacant IGA grocery store


New businesses, coupled with a recent building purchase, have created the most commercial activity in years in Canfield.

City manager Joe Warino said last year’s opening of a Dollar General, 477 W. Main St., coupled with construction on a new Advance Auto Parts are the most economic activity in the city in 10 years.

The construction value of these two projects is $1.175 million combined, said Warino.

“It’s a lot more than we’ve seen in recent years,” Warino said.

He also said Boardman businessman Joe Thomas, owner of Golf Headquarters, 1401 Boardman Canfield Road, has recently purchased the old Canfield IGA store, 8 N. Broad St. The building has sat vacant since it closed on Oct. 12, 2012. City officials are unsure what Thomas plans to do with the building.

Not backward just trying to spread the ghetto out to the burbs.

I don't think the prices are quite high enough at Giant Eagle so I wish they would bring a Whole Foods store too! The city of Canfield has been anti-development for many years. These changes are significant.

Canfield used to be country living. Developers have made it what it is today. When I drive out there I think it is sad that so much more is encroached upon each time I make that trip. Definitely sad that urban sprawl is the new city living. Move to the country in a development just like living in the city. Some of us live in the country because we like space, privacy, hunting, etc... I recall hunting parts of Howland that now have big ugly condos, areas of Cortland and Champion where the deer used to roam are now big giant homes and developments. Fifty years from now they will be the new hood.

Trader Joes is a great store, I really wish we had one around here. It is embarrassing that the best grocery store we have is Giant Eagle. I go to the Whole Foods in Cleveland every few months and Giant Eagle is as expensive (or more!) on the healthier foods with nowhere near the selection or quality. Mustard Seed Market in Akron is also worth the trip.
