Family Dollar/Dollar Tree combo store coming soon

By Haley Mitchell Godwin

The 10,500 square foot store is currently scheduled to open in December 2021 and will be located at 17824 Montgomery Highway in Highland Home, directly across from the Dollar General.

In addition to providing everyday low prices and a broad assortment of essential products, the Family Dollar section of the store will offer frozen and refrigerated food, a large selection of pantry goods, beauty and health merchandise, household supplies, basic apparel, baby and toddler necessities, pet food, electronics, toys and home décor.

With more than 4,000 items for just $1 each, shoppers will discover new treasures every week in the Dollar Tree section of the store, including balloons and party supplies, Hallmark greeting cards, seasonal decorations and holiday gifts, DIY crafting essentials, school necessities and much more.

“Small towns have historically had very limited retail options and shoppers often travel long distances to meet all of their shopping needs, but we are changing that,” Kayleigh M. Painter, Dollar Tree’s investor and media relations manager, said.

“Family Dollar and Dollar Tree are teaming up to provide the Highland Home community with a brand new, close-to-home store experience that offers incredible value on everyday products and exciting $1 deals.”

Britney Mason of Highland Home is looking forward to the store’s opening.

“This new store is going to be good for our town for many reasons. It’s going to generate more revenue for Highland Home, give us more choices, and I hope that the opening of this new store will encourage other businesses to come here. I’d love to see a full grocery store and maybe some restaurants come in,” Mason said.

“The new Family Dollar and Dollar Tree combo store is hopefully going to help me save time and cut out a few trips. Living in Highland Home, we have to drive to Luverne, Troy, Greenville, or Montgomery to access stores that have a wide variety of items available. I’m looking forward to this new option and the continued growth of Highland Home.”
