Family Dollar to relocate two stores

Much like QuikTrip has done in the Wichita market, North Carolina-based Family Dollar is relocating a couple of its Wichita stores not far from existing ones.

Family Dollar is leaving the Westway Shopping Center on South Seneca just south of Pawnee.

“We’re going to be relocating to just down the road,” says spokesman Cliff Cermak.

The new store will open sometime in 2015 at 2369 S. Seneca., which is just north of Pawnee.

“It’s a location that we’re really excited about,” Cermak says. He says the move is “to better serve the local community.”

Cermak says the new store will be the chain’s latest format and will have “improved shopping flow.”

Family Dollar also is relocating its store on East 21st Street. Cermak says it will move from 4930 E. 21st St., which is near 21st and Oliver, to 5120 E. 21st St., which is just a bit farther east.

“This particular store is going to be opening toward the end of October.”
