Anyone passing through Hopewell Township in Cumberland County lately can’t help but notice the work that has taken place, especially since spring rolled around. Supervisors have been busy tending to numerous projects, including maintenance at Hopewell Township Park, building improvements, Ramps Bridge and monitoring the construction of the new Dollar General Store located at 174 Newville Road, on the west end of town along Route 641.

The new store is expected to open in early July, according to township supervisor Danny Forrester, and from early discussions with the planning commission, the store is expected to hire at least five or six employees to start.
