The building that will house the first Byrne Dairy convenience store in Broome County has been constructed on the site of a closed Friendly's restaurant.

Workers began preparing the property at East Main Street and Loder Avenue for the new 2,4000-square-foot structure last October. The old restaurant, which shut down without warning in 2019, was torn down in November.

Byrne Dairy vice president Christian Brunelle said the newly-constructed building is completely enclosed so work can be done on the interior during the winter months. He said the gasoline tanks for the store are in the ground.

Brunelle said he expects the Endicott store will open in late May. He anticipates hiring for the location will start around the end of March.

Brunelle said about 25 people are expected to work in full- and part-time jobs at the store, which will be open 24 hours a day.

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
