According to Kayleigh Painter, Manager, Investor and Media Relations Director with Dollar Tree, Inc., Henryetta Family Dollar store will be closing briefly at the end of August. At that time, the store will be converted into a Dollar Tree store and re-opened in mid-September. “We are proud to be a part of the Henryetta community,” Painter said. Community have expressed their concerns about the current store having “bare shelves.” Upon closer inspection, a few food and beverage aisles are nearly bare, though Family Dollar management said they don’t plan to re-stock due to the closing, there is still plenty of other stock available.
