The grand opening of the 4,232-square-foot Byrne Dairy store and gas station in Cortland is slated for next summer, according to company vice president Christian Brunelle.

Construction recently began for the store, which will be located at the corner of Port Watson Street and River Street in the city. It is now scheduled to open around June 1 of next year, Brunelle said.

Brunelle and Byrne Dairy’s officials received their final piece of approval for the store at a Zoning Board of Appeals meeting in April.

“Nothing has changed with plans (for the store),” Brunelle added.

Brunelle noted construction of the store will take place throughout the winter, and the paving process will occur in the spring.
