Family Dollar Closing Over 300 Stores, Are Ours Safe?

It seems like every other week another store is closing its doors. From Sears to K-Mart to Radio Shack to JC Penney. And now we can add Family Dollar to the growing list. Now this isn’t exactly the stores going out of business. It all goes back to Dollar General’s purchase of several Family Dollar locations, and meaning in some markets where there were both a Dollar General and one of the recently acquired Family Dollars, one location would have to close.

Fortunately for Quincy, Hannibal, Keokuk and other surrounding areas, our Family Dollars are safe and shall remain open. The 25 store closings in Illinois and Missouri (Iowa escapes unscathed) are focused almost entirely in the Chicago and St. Louis areas. The full list of closings can be found here.
