Bargain Shoppers Rejoice! There's a new discount store opening up in Tuscaloosa. Family Dollar will be opening in a few weeks at 3851 Greensboro Ave.

According to wikipedia: "Family Dollar Stores Inc. is an American variety store chain in the United States. With over 8,000 locations in all states except Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington, it is the second largest retailer of its type in the United States. Family Dollar is headquartered in Matthews, a suburb of Charlotte, North Carolina, where it employs 1,400 people."

I spoke to a couple of the Construction Workers there on Friday Afternoon. (I stopped to use the porta-potty outside, because I had drank a little bit too much of Milo's Sweet Tea for lunch, and I figured I would do a little investigative reporting while I was there.) They told me that they expect the store to completely finished, and ready for business in about a month.

The store is located at 3851 Greensboro Avenue, which is about a Mile North of Skyland Blvd. That part of town needs a store like this, especially with the Neighborhoods, and Student Apartments located nearby. So, it should be profitable for Family Dollar Inc, and be well received with Tuscaloosa Residents who live on that part of town.

Plus, it's located not too far from the radio station, which is an added bonus! :-)
