The Family Dollar store was started in 1959 by a man named Leon Levine. He wanted to provide families with a place where they could get quality merchandise at affordable prices.
The company has grown significantly since then, and today there are over 8,000 Family Dollar stores across the United States.
The vast majority of these stores are located in rural areas, which makes them a vital resource for many families. In addition to offering low prices on essential items, Family Dollar stores also provide jobs for local residents. Currently, there are over 60,000 employees working at Family Dollar stores nationwide.
The store is open Monday through Saturday from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm, and on Sunday from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm. However, hours may vary slightly depending on the location.
