As reported on News Center 7 at 6:00, four of the 35 closures are in the Miami Valley.

  • Family Dollar at 440 N James H McGee Boulevard, Dayton (Montgomery County)
  • Family Dollar at 650 N University Boulevard, Middletown (Butler County)
  • Family Dollar at 511 S Breiel Boulevard, Middletown (Butler County)
  • Family Dollar at 199 S. Riverside Drive, New Miami (Butler County)

About 265 employees will be impacted by the statewide closures, according to the notice.

Dayton Black Panther Party chairman Donald Domineck said the Dayton location closure will have a major impact on its community.

“It impacts our community profoundly because we live in a food desert. We’re living in an area that’s a depressed area,” Domineck said.

He said many people in the community don’t have the means to travel to get their essentials.

Anytime a store like this closes, it makes it inconvenient for the people who live in this community because they have to go outside of their community to get their basic needs,” Domineck said.

As part of the Dayton Black Panther Party, Domineck said he focuses on improving his community.

“We’ve been working with the mayor to decrease crime and drugs in these communities so businesses will want to come in here and invest,” he said.

Overall, Domineck said he wants to see more businesses in his community, and this closure is no help.

According to a previous News Center 7 report, the company announced that about 1,000 stores under the Family Dollar and Dollar Tree brands will close over the next several years.
