GUERNSEY - The deadline for the opening of the new Family Dollar Store in Guernsey was pushed back due to COVID and supply issues, but has officially opened its doors to customers Jan. 8. Although it was just a soft opening with the grand opening scheduled to happen within the next few weeks, the parking lot was packed out.
According to preferred developer Dave Murdock from Salt Lake City, who builds Family Dollar stores all over Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, and in Idaho is with a group of investors who buys the land, builds the shell of a building and then leases those buildings to the Family Dollar Corporation. The lease is generally 10 to 15 years.
As for the choice of the Guernsey site, Murdock said that it was also a Family Dollar initiative.
