BANGOR, Maine -- R.H. Foster Energy plans to build five convenience stores in the state, with two locations in Randolph and Augusta, the Morning Sentinel reported.
The Augusta footprint includes a 6,000-square-foot convenience store, with a bank branch inside, 12 fueling pumps, two large-truck diesel pumps and a two-bay car wash. Preliminary plans have been submitted to the city's assistant planner, Susan Redmond, for approval, the report stated.
Susan Redmond, assistant planner for the city of Augusta, told the paper that R.H. Foster entered a purchase-and-sale agreement with the current property owners Donald and Theresa Rodrigue.
"They applied for major development approval," Redmond said. "They submitted a preliminary review application and had their first public hearing. At this point, they have not submitted an application for final review. Once they do that, we would review it, and provided it was sufficiently completed, schedule it for another public hearing before the Planning Board."
While R.H. Foster has expressed interest in building stores in Hermon, Old Town and Lincoln, Maine, the Randolph location, once home to an old movie theatre, is awaiting planning board approval.
