ALBION – Two major chains – Dunkin’ Donuts and Advance Auto Parts – are looking at sites in Albion, village officials said at tonight’s Village Board meeting.

Neither company has submitted a formal application to the village. But village officials said Advance Auto is serious about the former Rite Aid building at the northeast corner of the routes 98 and 31 intersection. The site has been vacant for several years since Rite Aid moved to the former Eckerd building across the street.

Advance has nearby sites in Brockport, Batavia and Lockport.

Dunkin’ Donuts is looking at a building next to Tim Hortons. The company is considering tearing down a warehouse owned by Charles Breuilly and building a new site for Albion. Dunkin’s closest site is in Batavia.
