Family Dollar plans 3 new stores

July 18, 2011 Updated Jul 18, 2011 at 6:53 AM EDT

Ellicott Development Co. and Sinatra & Co. Realty are teaming up to build three Family Dollar stores, including two in the City of Buffalo.

Under construction is a 9,000-square-foot Family Dollar for Kenmore Avenue near Elmwood Avenue. The store is scheduled to be completed by mid-fall and ready to welcome its first customer shortly thereafter.

Also under construction is a 9,000-square-foot Family Dollar on Bailey Avenue near Lisbon Avenue in Buffalo. That store is slated to be ready for its first customers by late fall or early winter.

Ellicott Development and Sinatra & Co. are planning to build a 9,000-square-foot store on South Park Avenue in Lackawanna, although construction has yet to begin. The store is tentatively set to open next year.

Family Dollar offers deeply discounted items. The national chain is on an aggressive expansion campaign.
