That long empty lot at 29th Street and Broadway on the island is soon to be home to a Family Dollar store.
A reader today emailed the photo heralding the imminent arrival of the store.
Family Dollar operates a chain of more than 7,900 general merchandise stores selling products at deep discount.
The chain must see a strong market here; it already operates three stores on the island, including one at 2207 Broadway.
The island also is home to competitors Dollar Tree and Dollar General.
So, are you happy with the proliferation of dollar stores? Is there much difference among the competing chains?
