Anticipation for the opening of Preston’s Family Dollar store has been building for months, and finally, after months of waiting, the first customers were able to make their way through the front doors at 8 a.m. on Thursday, April 10. Although this was not the official grand opening for the store, there was considerable customer traffic last Thursday morning.

Elizabeth Strain is the Preston store’s general manager. Strain has several years in retail experience and is greatly looking forward to the months ahead as Family Dollar establishes its presence in the community. Strain, along with a tentative staff size of eight to 10 employees is just as excited as the customers. However, the staff size is subject change by either fluctuating or downsizing as needed. “People have been really excited,” Strain commented.

Construction groundbreaking took place on September 1, 2013, with Norwood Commercial Construction doing the majority of the project. On April 1, the project team was able to enter the store for the first time, designing and detailing the interior retail, office, and storage spaces. In just 10 days, the majority of set up has been completed and Family Dollar is ready to serve the public.

Area Operations Manager Brian Carriker was also present at the store on Thursday, overseeing the finishing touches on Preston’s Family Dollar initiation. “We’re really glad to be here and I think the area is really going to enjoy what we have to offer,” stated Carriker. Carriker oversees 17 stores in the region.

Strain explained the Preston Family Dollar store’s official grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, April 19. Keep your eyes peeled as flyers will soon be arriving in your mail boxes offering great coupons offers and deals. Also, on April 19 the store will have some door prizes to give away as well as samples of products for sale.

Though Family Dollar opened at 8 a.m. on April 10, the regular hours are seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information on Family Dollar’s products and sales, visit www.familydollar.com.
