Dollar Tree Opens At 4443 North Sheridan
With little fanfare, Dollar Tree opened today at Sheridan and Agatite. It's a brand new build-out, with the A+ Store moving to the north side of the building (where Unique Thrift used to be) and Dollar Tree taking over the south side of the building, closest to the parking lot.
Apparently fanfare was unneeded, as customers were absolutely streaming in this afternoon, a real cross-section of Uptown's diversity.
Dollar Tree and Family Dollar have the same corporate ownership, so it's not exactly a newcomer to Uptown. With the Weiss Plaza Family Dollar having closed a few years ago, the Broadway/Wilson Family Dollar's future up in the air with new construction on the way, and the Edgewater Dollar Tree rumored to be closing when the Broadway/Berwyn shopping plaza closes by 2020, Uptown is a prime location for Dollar Tree. The only other one nearby is in Lincoln Square, at Western and Lawrence. (Unlike Family Dollar, every item at Dollar Tree costs a buck.)
The new store's hours are 8am-9pm Monday through Saturday, and 9am-7pm on Sunday. It accepts all major credit and debit cards, including Discover and American Express, and SNAP.
We welcome Dollar Tree to Uptown.

whats going to happen to the broadway/berwyn plaza? whats going to go there?ReplyDelete
Dunno, but it's clearing out. Jim at Pizzeria Aroma just bought a storefront a half block down the street to get ahead of the curve.Delete
Will they build anything on that land? I hope its condos/apartments with ground level retail/offices.Delete
Competition for Target.ReplyDelete
It's supposed to be "bulldozed" by 2020. One can hope. Sooner the better. Bring back the tavern on the corner where Payless is now.ReplyDelete
Are there any plans to build on that land? I don't want an empty lot there.Delete
It's out of our coverage area. You might try giving Ald. Osterman's office or the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce a call to find out the plans for the lot. No one makes money on a prime retail block staying empty. It would be a bizarre move indeed to throw out paying tenants to let it sit unoccupied.Delete
I've been going to the Dollar Tree at Broadway/Berwyn for years and I've been looking forward to this store opening in the neighborhood! Yay Dollar Tree!ReplyDelete
