New store in Anderson

The new Family Dollar/Dollar Tree is a welcome sight.

The Anderson community, on south NC Highway 62, has a new business addition. A Family Dollar/Dollar Tree has opened, and the grand opening is set for April 3, 2021. Currently they are running plenty of discounts, with more planned for the grand opening. Also, downloading the family dollar app gives access to Smart Coupons, discounts and contests. The app can be loaded from a cell phone, or the family dollar website, and the manager, Lou, and her staff are giving out flyers explaining the app and how to sign up and use it.

Family Dollar and Dollar Tree partnered on stores for a while, and now Dollar Tree owns both brands. There are currently 50 of these stores, with more being planned. They're called FDT, or Family Dollar Tree, and are billed as the best of two worlds. When you enter the store one side is Family Dollar and the other is Dollar Tree. The Family Dollar side has a well-stocked pantry with just about all grocery items, including frozen and refrigerated goods. There's a large aisle for medications and health and beauty products. The Dollar Tree side has many gift items, as well as everyday kitchen and home tools. There's also a toy section, and garden supplies, as well as books.

I live in Anderson, and I'm enjoying the fact that the store is 1/2 mile from home. It seems many others are happy about it also, as it's been busy when I've stopped in. If you live in Anderson, or nearby, go there and see what our new neighbor has to offer. The Family Dollar/Dollar tree in Anderson is located at 11033 S NC Hwy 62 and is open until 9 pm.
