Family Dollar set to open mid-April in Ashtabula Township

ASHTABULA TOWNSHIP — Shoppers will have a new place to go next month in the Route 20 corridor, officials said Friday.

The new Family Dollar store will open in mid-April, said a media spokeswoman from Family Dollar’s Corporate Office in Matthews, N.C.

The Family Dollar in the plaza on State Road will be moving to the new, 9,180-square-foot store recently built on a 7.5-acre site adjacent to Corlew Field and across from Community First Credit Union, store officials said.

Under the terms of the new county/city/township sewer district agreement, a joint economic development district (JEDD) has been created to accommodate the new development.

The county owns the sewer lines in the township and the city of Ashtabula owns the wastewater treatment plant. Under the sewer district agreement, employee wages and the profits from businesses in the JEDD would be subject to the city’s 1.8 percent income tax.

The revenue will be shared between the city and township after deductions are made for JEDD administration and capital improvements to the treatment plant, City Manager Jim Timonere has said.

Timonere said he’s excited about the business because it will bring money into the city.
