Workers from Jerry Tank Masonry work Friday on repairing and remodeling the old Dollar General building in downtown New Hampton, which will soon serve as the headquarters for the city’s new telecommunications system.

Telecommunications preparing its new home

Old Dollar General Building will serve many uses after repair and remodeling is completed

And when you walk inside the downtown building that was once home to the retailer before it moved to its current location on the northern side of the city, it really doesn’t look like a store anymore.

Gone are the shelves, aisles and some would joke, the boxes in the middle of those said aisles as New Hampton’s new telecommunications system begins preparing what will be not only its headquarters but also provide space for other community programs.
