DOVER, Del.- Dover will see some new businesses in the coming months.

Bill Neaton, Dover Economic Development manager, said Burlington will be moving into the building in north Dover which used to house a K-Mart.

Burlington is formerly known as Burlington Coat Factory, and it will take up part of that building on Route 13. Neaton said the other portion will be leased out.

Town Center is a business plaza that used to house a Walmart near the Dover Mall. It has been vacant for years, and the new Town Center project has been ongoing for about two years, according to Neaton.

Neaton said the shopping center will include shops like Ulta Beauty, Ross, Petco, Five Below, a furniture store and Outback Steakhouse.

Many residents WBOC spoke with Tuesday are interested in Dover focusing more on smaller restaurants.

Glen Wood, a resident of Dover, said he sometimes feels like there is a lack of local restaurants to go to.

"They have a lot of the chain restaurants," he said. "But the ones like 33 West and The Grey Fox, they need more of that kind of thing for the people who live here."

One person from Wilmington who visits Dover often says he is glad to see that Dover is continuing to grow, but he would like to see more family-owned restaurants in the city.

Tracy Williams, a landlord in Dover, says she is not all that interested in shopping at the stores in Town Center, but she understands the need for them.

"Everybody needs something," she said. "So I think if you have diverse businesses then I think it's a good thing."
