Family Dollar coming to Ansonville | Anson Record

It is expected to open in May.

ANSONVILLE — Soon there will be a new Family Dollar on US 52 North between Sunoco and Ansonville Elementary.

It is expected to bring eight to ten full-time and part-time jobs to Anson County and boost tax revenue. Family Dollar stores typically take three to four months from groundbreaking to opening, meaning the Ansonville location will likely open sometime in May.

County Commissioner J.D. Bricken, who represents Ansonville, spearheaded the development.

“I asked the residents what they wanted and they told me a Dollar Tree or Family Dollar,” he told the Anson Economic Development Partnership (AnsonEDP). “It turned out that they do not build free-standing Dollar Trees, but were happy to talk to us about a Family Dollar.”

Bricken worked to assemble the necessary property and consulted with state and county agencies, including AnsonEDP, on the property’s development potential.

“They have started site work, but haven’t gotten much beyond clearing a space for the structural steel,” AnsonEDP executive director John Marek said. “Everyone I have spoken to in Ansonville is happy and excited about the store.”

If there ever was a time to protest the injustices of poverty, now is a good one. A March report from Bloomberg declares that families will face $5,200 more in annual expenditures for the same basket of goods. Unfortunately, that report dropped before a later inflation report in May, showing a higher increase than expected. The inflation number surged from a 7.9% increase in March to 8.6% in May. Costs for gasoline are up twice as much as last year. Food costs are up over 10%, while most experts expect that it will continue to rise. The middle class can weather the storm for a time, but the poor continue to be bludgeoned by misguided policies.

I guess it never really occurred to me until now that I should number these things, so, since three others have come before it through the years, this is officially installment number four. The vast majority of the time, I have one thought on my mind and, therefore, one subject in my column, but sometimes I have, as it were, a head full of tiny squirrels that need to be gotten on paper. And so…

RALEIGH — Although North Carolina has become a demonstrably freer place to live and work over the past 10 years, our state remains grossly out of step with the rest of America in a key respect: we unnecessarily restrict the freedom of workers to enter new occupations and the freedom of consumers to purchase goods and services from whomever they wish.
