Dollar General, Advance Auto lead business boom in Canfield


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.
