The Family Dollar, 26534 Ninth St., is planning a grand opening celebration for this weekend, offering special sales for customers visiting the new store.

Family Dollar, a leading small format and convenience retailer, will host a grand opening for its new Highland store on Saturday, Aug. 31.

While the new store opened at 26534 Ninth St. about three weeks ago, the grand opening celebration will be held for the community from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The event 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 a reusable shopping bag.

“Family Dollar is proud to be a part of the Highland community and we are excited to welcome existing and new customers to our new store,” said Jim Van Slyke, Family Dollar spokesperson. “The store will provide even greater values and convenience to our shoppers.”

In addition to providing everyday low prices and a broad assortment of necessities, the new store will include $1 Dollar Tree merchandise, additional freezers and coolers and an expanded selection of food, beauty and essentials, household products, and seasonal items.

A store of this size typically employs six to 10 associates. Interested applicants can apply online at or by visiting the store location.

Family Dollar stores are open seven days a week and offer everyday items for the entire family in an easy-to-shop neighborhood location. The store is at 26534 Ninth St., Highland.
