Decatur Patch ran an article about 10 days ago on that's coming to Oakhurst. It should open in mid-summer.
Patch will give a more exact date later, but for now we'd like to know more about what people in the neighborhood think about Family Dollar.
The comments on the last story were pretty strong. Here are some examples:
I think that Family Dollar is NOT what Oakhurst needed. It would have made much more sense to have a small, neighborhood grocery in that spot. I am certain that the landlord did not take that into consideration...everyone knows we need a grocery store on the south side of the tracks.
I will shop there! It will be convenient and helpful for those of us who cannot afford half a million dollar homes. It's disappointing to read the disparaging comments. Everyone in Oakhurst doesn't fit one image or profile.
Oakhurst is a changing neighborhood, has been for a decade. It's becoming gentrified.
Do you think Family Dollar is a good fit for Oakhurst? Will the fit get better or worse as gentrification continues?
