Andalusia’s Dollar Tree store is expected to open April 18, store officials said Friday.

Chelle Davis, Dollar Tree spokesperson, said the grand opening is tentatively set for the April date.

“Dollar Tree continues to grow and is proud to be part of the Andalusia community,” Davis said.

The 8,286-square foot store is located on Dr. MLK Jr. Expressway in the former Burkes location next to Winn-Dixie. Davis said that based on the size of the Andalusia store, there will be 10 to 12 new, permanent jobs created.   The store will be open seven days a week and offers “a fast, fun and friendly shopping experience,” Davis said.

Davis said the store will be similar to other Dollar Trees stores found in Alabama and will feature household goods, cleaning products, paper products, food items, seasonal items and more – all for $1 or less.
