By Tammy Moore Teague

After a year of planning and construction, the doors to the Family Dollar Store in Waldron, AR finally opened. On Saturday, city officials joined Nathan Aust, District Manager, in a grand opening celebration.

“I am excited to have this new store in your community and to serve the people of Waldron,” stated Aust. “It will bring great opportunities and a fresh new look on what Family Dollar next generation stores look like and what we offer.”

The parking lot and store was all abuzz with excitement over the newly opened store. Family Dollar management organized a fun filled event, complete with festivities and food. Those included a children’s coloring station, face painting, “spin the wheel”, tacos, enchiladas and Jim Shores famous egg rolls. Shores jokingly commented “satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.” 

Aust, who has been with the company nine years, added that the Waldron location is one of 8,000 stores in the Family Dollar retail chain. “Our focus is on providing good customer service,” Aust concluded.
