Dunn Tire has received the final approvals the company needs for its new store planned for Sheridan Drive in Amherst.
The town Planning Board last week approved the site plan for the store at 3424 Sheridan, just east of Sweet Home Road, which will take over space that now houses Color-Tech Photo Lab. And the town Zoning Board of Appeals on Tuesday approved a variance allowing Dunn Tire to build a parking lot with 28 instead of 30 spaces.
The Town Board had previously rezoned the property.
Dunn Tire now can close on its purchase of 3424 Sheridan, where the company plans to build a 10,500-square-foot store that is 50 percent larger than its existing store 1 mile away at 3045 Sheridan in the Northtown Plaza. Dunn Tire expects to begin construction by fall and to open the new store in spring.
