Binghamton Store Reopens After 8-Week Renovation
A store on Binghamton's West Side that closed two months ago has resumed operations following an expansion project.
The Dollar Tree store in the Foundry Plaza off Glenwood Avenue was shut down on January 4. It reopened on March 1 after the remodeling work was completed.
Construction work was completed about a week earlier than anticipated. The store was back in business a few days ahead of schedule.
The amount of space for merchandise in the store was increased by about one-third.
The food section was expanded and the store's frozen food section was enlarged. More items also have been added to the housewares and the health and beauty departments.
Dollar Tree, Incorporated operates several stores in the Binghamton area. Many use the Dollar Tree name. The company also owns the Family Dollar chain as the result of an acquisition in 2015.
The Family Dollar store at 60 Court Street in downtown Binghamton last month started a "Going Out of Business" sale. The store's lease was expiring and there are plans to open a Mexican restaurant and bar at the site.
