There's one in Dayville next to The Vacant Ames. Planning on going there to see if it's still vacant.

I wonder what they're looking at, when they decide which stores to close. Will they close stores in 'depressed' areas, rundown buildings, or would the closures be to get rid of two stores in the immediate vicinity of each other? Closing down just 4 stores (I presume that the closures would be a combination of DT and FD stores, and not just one branding) in the entire Cleveland market is surprising.

In Philadelphia, 5 Family Dollar locations has to sold.

And oddly enough, they are being taken over by a company who is calling the divested locations 'Dollar Express'. Dollar Express was also the name of a Philadelphia area dollar store chain (along with card & gift stores called 'Spains' that were usually next to the Dollar Express stores) that Dollar Tree acquired in the early 2000's.
Here's an article about it: http://articles.philly.com/2000-04-06/business/25590801_1_dollar-express-macon-brock-dollar-tree-stores
(The Spain's stores all seemed to disappear by the mid 2000's).
The 5 Philadelphia locations are:
8445-C Frankford Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19136-2420
6587 Roosevelt Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19149-2918
2495 Aramingo Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125-3732
2201 Oregon Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19145-4111
138 W. Chelten Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19144-3302

and this is not including stores in the 4 suburban SE PA Counties, and southern NJ.  the lone DE location is: 1709 Lancaster Ave, Wilmington, DE 19805-3926

Here's the complete list of Family Dollar stores being sold to Sycamore Partners
http://couponsinthenews.com/2015/07/03/330-family-dollar-stores-to-be-sold-off-the-complete-list/

The 3 Tampa Stores are NOT exactly in upscale neighborhoods...The Busch Blvd is in a semi Abandoned shopping center (the plaza gets cars on Sundays because a church is there. Causeway is next to an empty Bravo Supermarket and an empty NAPA Auto store. The Florida Ave Store is in a plaza with a Home Depot Dollar Tree and Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market. I doubt those 3 will be around in 6 months...

Yesterday I was in Dollar Tree at the Brentwood Town Centre near Pittsburgh.
They had a sign on the door announcing they were hiring for the new Bethel Park location.

Dollar Tree has long had a store in Bethel Park, in the Walmart plaza on Route 88
between Giant Eagle and Pep Boys.  It is an older format store (long single aisle runs, no
refrigerated foods section, etc.).

I asked the manager and apparently that store is moving about 1/4 mile down the road
to the South Park Shops.   I presume into a space that was vacated by a local dollar store
chain called $1.00 Stuff that went out of business earlier this year.

I presume this will give them the room to add a refrigerated section like the other newer stores.
Though this location has much more difficult access (the entrance to a huge county park just
ahead makes it very difficult to make a left turn), and that shopping center does not draw nearly
the traffic as Walmart's plaza.

That $1.00 store you speak of was originally a Music Oasis (National Record Mart off-shoot). That store is indeed very large.

That doesn't look like a huge spot (though it looks a bit bigger in the new photo showing that it wraps around the corner) - but maybe it's deeper than would be expected?

This new store does go back on both the "Dollar Tree" signage side and the "dollar Tree" logo signage side.  this location used to be House of Fabrics (the "Dollar tree" signage side) and Q-Ball, which was a billards hall (on the "Dollar Tree" logo signage side)

As mentioned on the Family Dollar thread the Family Dollar that opened in Southington in 2013 became Dollar Tree. This is Southington's second Dollar Tree. I finally had a chance to go there and it's much nicer than the other Dollar Tree in town which took over the old Joann's in 2005.

Earlier this year, Dollar Tree converted all of their Deals locations to Dollar Tree.

Since Deals was similar to Family Dollar it's not surprising that they did this. Mom and I went to the Meriden Square Mall on Friday (8/19) and it was the first time I saw Deals rebranded as Dollar Tree in the adjacent Chamberlain Plaza. They still have the shopping carts and hand baskets from Deals.

Although it seems they should have changed them to Family Dollar stores as they were more similar to that (multiple price points) than to Dollar Tree?

When I was in Cheshire, Connecticut back in October I saw a free-standing Dollar Tree. I didn't have a camera, so I didn't get a picture.
