Family Dollar Store opening in Jackson

Posted Friday, July 6, 2012, at 11:46 AM

A new Family Dollar Store is coming to Jackson at site of the former El Torero Restaurant, according to Tom Kelsey, commercial broker with Lorimont Place, Ltd., who handled the recent real estate transaction. Kelsey recently closed the sale of the property at 711 E. Jackson Blvd., across the street from Brennecke Chevrolet.

The former restaurant building will be completely razed and site work completed to build the new retail store.

Family Dollar was founded in 1959 in Charlotte, N.C., and has grown to over 7,200 stores in 45 states across the U.S.

The company currently has 50,000 employees with annual sales of $8.5 billion dollars. An opening date has not been announced, but historically the company has these types of stores completed within a few months of land acquisition. Kelsey said. No sales price was disclosed, but the Lorimont website lists the property at $325,000.
