PRESTONSBURG — The Prestonsburg Family Dollar store will soon be moving to a larger location, putting a long-vacant building back into service.
The store will be moving just a couple of blocks up North Lake Drive, taking over the space formerly occupied by Save-A-Lot.
Bryn Winburn, a public relations specialist out of Family Dollar Stores’ corporate headquarters in North Carolina, confirmed the move Tuesday. She said the company has targeted spring as the new store’s tentative opening date.
Winburn did not have a lot of specifics about the move, but did say the new store is 12,000 square feet, with 11,000 square feet of interior building space. She did not know the area of Family Dollar’s current store, but said most stores in the chain are 7,000-to-8,000 square feet.
Winburn did not know whether the additional space at the new location would allow for a larger selection of merchandise or simply a larger storage room.
