Family Dollar announces grand re-opening event in Coloma

A re-opening celebration will be held Saturday at the renovated Family Dollar store in downtown Coloma.

COLOMA — The Family Dollar store in Coloma, not yet 3 years old, will celebrate the re-opening of its renovated store on Saturday. 

Family Dollar announced Friday that the event from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. will feature gift basket raffles, giveaways, free samples and family fun entertainment. In addition, the first 50 customers on Saturday will receive a gift card and reusable gift bag.

“Family Dollar is proud to be a part of the Coloma community and we’re excited to welcome existing and new customers to our newly renovated store,” said Heather Briganti, Family Dollar spokesperson. “In addition to providing everyday low prices and a broad assortment of merchandise, we have expanded our selection of food, beauty and essentials, household products, and seasonal items. Our renovated store should provide even greater value and convenience to our shoppers.”

The Coloma Family Dollar store opened in its current location, 251 N. Paw Paw St., in mid-2016. It previously had been located directly across the street, The Herald-Palladium reported at the time.

The original store opened in 1995, according to Briganti. 

The company demolished the former Eco-Logical Cleaners store and built the 8,320-square-foot building to replace the smaller store.

In late 2015, city officials approved a parking variance for the new Family Dollar store because city codes required 56 parking spots, based on the store size, but with the variance only 29 parking spots were required.
