Family Dollar gives six acres to Buckeye Local School District

ASHTABULA TOWNSHIP — Edgewood High School football fans will have plenty of parking options this fall, thanks to a donation from Family Dollar.

Family Dollar stores, which are based in North Carolina, gave the Buckeye Local School District about six acres of land adjacent to Corlew Stadium on Route 20.

Superintendent Joseph Spiccia said the school district will use the property for overflow parking.

The new, 9,180-square-foot Family Dollar store on Route 20 opened its doors three weeks ago.

The store chain bought 7.5 acres to build the new store, but only needed about 1.5 for the building and parking, so it gave the remainder of the property to the school district, officials said.

The dollar store chain replaces the old Family Dollar store at 3228 State Road, which is now closed.

Assistant Manager Kailee Horn said Route 20 store is one of the Family Dollar’s largest stores, boasting wider aisles and a wall of refrigerated and frozen foods.

Family Dollar stores typically range from 7,500- to 9,500-square feet, according to the store’s web site.

There are several aisles of food, and plenty of housewares, cleaning supplies, laundry products, pet food, seasonal items, party supplies, clothes, toys, gifts and more.

The six employees from the State Road store moved to the new store, and 14 temporary employees helped move to the goods.

Family Dollar is one of a chain of 7,500 stores, according to its web site.
