NUTLEY, NJ - Dollar Tree opened on Franklin Ave. on Friday in the retail space formerly occupied by Rite Aid.
The Franklin Ave. site, near the Belleville border, was once a Grand Union supermarket, It also was home to H. Salt Seafood Galley, before becoming Burger King. Burger King eventually moved to a stand-alone structure within the same parking lot. Rite Aid occupied the entire space for years afterward. This past Memorial Day weekend the final sales were rung at Rite Aid.
Dollar Tree, where everything from household items, snacks, craft supplies, and more is just $1.00, seems to be popular based on the full parking lot Friday evening.
