Holiday shopping has just begun for millions of shoppers, but if you’re looking for discounts, things get even more difficult.
Many customers turn to discount stores to find deals on their favorite products, however, and some of the most popular chains in America are closing.
Family Dollar is reportedly planning to close a store in Little Chute, Wisconsin, next month.
The closure was confirmed by store manager Donny Anderson.
“It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Little Chute Family Dollar Stores is closing,” Anderson wrote in a Facebook post.
“Our last day of operation will be Saturday, December 17th, 2022. We would like to thank the community of Little Chute, WI and the surrounding areas from the bottom of our hearts for supporting our store for many years.”
Anderson said the store’s lease actually expired at the beginning of the year and the company was “actively scouting” for another location.
“When our corporate office went to the landlord to set up a new temporary lease to keep our store operating while we looked at relocation sites, we were told that our landlord had raised the rent too much, That’s way more than what we were paying.” wrote.
“With high rent costs and an old building that outgrew our store a few years ago, we were forced to make a very difficult decision.”
Another location in Norwalk, Ohio is also closing its doors as the company looks to move to a new location as quickly as possible.
Big names like Dollar General are also making huge cuts as the chain closed one of its Market stores in July of this year.
A location in Indianapolis, Indiana was also closed in October.
Nordstrom Rack, another discount store, is also closing one of its locations in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Nordstrom Inc. said in a statement, “We approach each of our markets holistically, leveraging our combination of physical and digital assets to offer customers increased product selection, improved delivery speeds and unmatched convenience. “
“We believe we are better able to serve customers in the Minneapolis market by focusing on our nearest Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack locations as well as online.”
