It’s open and huge and full of all the items we love. The new location is easily accessible by public transportation and has lots of parking for those who drive. The new store is larger and packed with stuff. I stopped by there, grabbed a clean cart, and purchased twice as much as I intended to.  

The new store has a larger selection of items and more room to shelve these items. I was looking for items for a party and found items I hadn’t seen at other Dollar Trees. A few days later, I was running errands and dropped in another Dollar Tree to purchase this cute container for deviled eggs that I had seen and a few more of the pretty white plates I had purchased. Neither of the items were on the shelves; I was only able to purchase them at the new Dollar Tree.

The community welcomes Dollar Tree back after the previous store that was located a few blocks away was burned to the ground in 2020 when peaceful protesting turned into something else. We lost businesses which made shopping challenging for many. This new location replaces a Walgreens that left the community a few years ago. However, this community is working to rebuild. 

My daughter and I are excited about the new location, pleased with the cleanliness of the store, friendliness of the employees and the abundance of items on the shelves. And super excited to be able again to shop in the community.
