Byrne Dairy is set to expand its presence in the Finger Lakes, with plans for a new store in the Town of Walworth, as presented at the recent Walworth Planning Board meeting.
The proposed site at 1828 Penfield-Walworth Road, near Route 350, is envisioned to feature a 4,232-square-foot convenience store and a full fueling facility with eight positions across four pumps.
Christian Brunelle, Vice President of Store Development for Byrne Dairy, detailed the project’s layout and features to the board.
Although the property is currently zoned as ‘Hamlet’, accommodating multifamily and neighborhood businesses, the plan includes a dedicated entrance from Penfield-Walworth Road and ample parking space designed to cater to recreational vehicles and boat trailers.
A traffic study is underway to ensure the suitability of the site, mirroring the successful launch of a similar Byrne Dairy store in Palmyra.
Town Supervisor Mike Donalty expressed optimism about Byrne Dairy’s potential impact on the local economy.
He highlighted the company’s reputation for contributing to community development and its alignment with the town’s Comprehensive Plan to foster a business-friendly environment.
Donalty told the Wayne Times he sees the store’s addition as a catalyst for attracting more businesses and visitors to the Walworth Hamlet, shifting its role from a mere pass-through area to a thriving local hub.
The proposal is set to undergo further traffic studies and public hearings before final approval.
