From housewares to health and beauty items, the store offers its customers an easy way to save money.

Unfortunately, one of the stores in Poughkeepsie, New York is closing for good.

The store at 412 Main Street was littered with signs reading “We’re Closing.”

Everything in the store is 75 percent off except tobacco, beer, wine and gift cards. It is important to note that all items are a final sale.

According to the WPDH, the reason for the closure appears to be violence in the area.

A Family Dollar employee reportedly told the news outlet that a recent shooting in the area has caused drivers to have trouble delivering goods to the store.

Ultimately, Family Dollar decided the location was unsafe and that it was best to close the shop.

The US Sun contacted Family Dollar for more information, but received no response.

We tried to call the lockout but got a dial tone.

Buyers can contact the nearby location at 633 Main Street.


The closure comes after the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services fined 52 Family Dollar and Dollar General stores for overcharging their customers.

The excessive charges were discovered during “regular, unannounced inspections” of image scanner systems across the company.

“Inflated prices cost consumers, so we remain vigilant when inspecting stores to protect consumers,” he said.

“Remember it’s always a good idea to check your receipt and the price on the shelf to make sure you’re paying the right amount and to notify managers if the prices don’t match.”

The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services fined businesses in 33 counties.

Walgreens plans to close 150 stores this year.

Meanwhile, Walmart has promised savings in grocery stores are on the way.
