Darell Sells owned the corner across from the riding track on the 77 hwy and Biffle road side. It was talk many years ago that he was going to build a McDonald's on that lot but changed his mind because he was afraid it would affect the #1 in TN rating that his Dyersburg store has held for many years. It has been told that he has sold that piece of property to Shell or Petro gas company to build a turck stop. They will usually put some type of food chain in it. Will it be a McDonalds who knows. You would have to assume if Darrell wouldn't build one before why would he now. Hope this helps you. Call your local town hall maybe they know something.

I have been hearing that rumor for years. I personally think Newbern is too small for another big resturaunt....when Dyersburg is only about 15 minutes or less away.

You are absolutely right about the meat at Foodrite!

As far as the McDonals at Pilot, Little general is in a panic because Pilot will be selling gas and diesel much cheaper and the "dinner plate" crowd will be going to McDonalds at the Pilot. Not only does Sonic need to get their act together, but so does Duncan's, Little General, Maverick and the rest of the price fixers!

I drive a big truck and alot of companys and privet owners have contracts with Pilot for cheaper diesel. I can say that if they do put this Pilot in that Shell and Maverick will be closed soon. Big name company like Pilot can afford to lower there gas prices against the others in town. With our contract that we have with Pilot we get diesel $1.50 a gallon cheaper than the Shell in Newbern right now.

Wow a Pilot in Newbern want that mean more traffic. More 18 wheelers and people off the interstate. Want that hurt the business in Newbern with the service they carry. I mean they carry food, drinks, shirts, all kinds of nick nacks, cheaper gas and there open 24/7. No one in Newbern will stand a chance will they? I mean This and That has a point if their prices are cheaper then truckers, farmers, and mostly everyday people want have a use for the gas stations in Newbern.

Why is it that people in Newbern do not want any new businesses? Seems it could use something.(Hopefully not McDonalds) but other stores too. I do not believe that Newbern would get such a thing. And what about Hardee's or some good pizza? Steak and Shake, etc.

Believe it when I see it. Any one know how new grocery store is doing? I bet not too good. Food Rite is high, but best meat in Dyer Co. We do need something besides Moms and Sonic.The old man at Moms is a rude butt hole. The only reason he is in business is because no other place to go in Newbern. He didn't last long in Dyersburg. He ruined a good thing, K&N rootbeer.

Foodrite is good, BUT very overpriced unless it is on sale.

I think the Pilot/McDonalds would be good for the area. Let's face it, most non-locals wouldn't be patronizing any businesses in Newbern. They would just gas up and go regardless of what gas station they use. I think the upside most people are missing is the much needed jobs this will generate, from the construction to the day to day running of the place. With lay off happening every day, new jobs are a God send. Plus, new business will allow for some more competition because folks will have more choices. If the Pilot does come, there will definitely need to be a red light at that 4 way stop.

Yea, but on the other hand, possibility of some existing businesses closing down because of it. That would mean ppl who live in Newbern with no jobs and Pilot/McD`s raking in the jack with all the profits going straight to Dyersburg.
