Family Dollar Opens in Helper


Family Dollar’s newest Castle Country branch has opened in Helper, giving locals and travelers alike a location right off Highway 6. The location is not the first in the area, but it offers the same greats deals customers have come to know and love from Family Dollar for over 60 years.

“In 1958, a 21-year-old entrepreneur with an interest in merchandising became intrigued with the idea of operating a low-overhead, self-service retail store,” the company shared. “Leon Levine believed he could offer his customers a variety of high-quality, good value merchandise for under $2. Because he had grown up in his family’s retail store, he understood value, quality and customer satisfaction. In November 1959, Leon Levine opened the first Family Dollar store in Charlotte, North Carolina, and was on his way to becoming a retailing legend.”

The concept has grown throughout the years with the chain now boasts thousands of stores throughout the United States. Customers can find the Helper location at 617 Highway 6.
