Dollar Tree and Family Dollar to close 1000 Stores

Update – 3/18 – It has been reported that a closing sign is up at the Slocomb Family Dollar.


Reports indicate Family Dollar, owned by Dollar Tree, has been struggling for some time now.  Nearly 600 stores are scheduled to close this year. Over the next few years an additional 370 are set to close. Dollar Tree plans on only closing around 30 stores as their leases expire at retail locations.

I have not found any information to indicate that any Dothan or the surrounding area stores are set for closure. Even with the closures, Family Dollar will still have approximately 7000 retail locations.

Inflation, law suits, and employee working conditions are just a few reasons named for the closings.
