FAST food giant McDonald's Australia has signalled its intention to roll-out a second store in Mount Gambier as part of a proposed multi-million dollar development planned for the city's eastern gateway.
McDonald's has lodged a"statement of effect" development application with Mount Gambier City Council to gain approval to construct a bulky goods retail outlet, a petrol station and a restaurant at the former Fletcher Jones site.
It is understood the owner of the site and McDonald's have yet to agree to a sale contract and the Fletcher Jones site is one of a number of potential locations.
The proposed second Mount Gambier McDonald's store is expected to create 150 ongoing jobs and create a economic boom during its construction phase.
