If you’ve been by the Dollar Tree store located at 3900 Erie St., you’ve probably noticed that the store was closed and a number of dumpsters in front of it. So we wondered what the deal was, was it closed for good or just being remodeled. After calling the Dollar Tree store over on Durand Avenue, we learned the store is being remodeled to include a cooler and a freezer. The store is expected to open sometime in the next month.

Love what we do?

In addition to our education features, we’ll be kicking off a series of stories highlighting how parents, students, and educators are adapting to the impact of COVID-19 on education. If this is important to you, please consider donating to our education reporting fund. https://business.facebook.com/donate/1846323118855149/3262802717172659/
