Dollar Tree – First-ever Dollar Tree finally opens in Harlan County

HARLAN COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) – A new store is in town at the Village Center Mall in Harlan: Dollar Tree. This new updated Dollar Tree will include a snack zone, diary and frozen food sections, and a craft area.

“Humbling, you know, to come into a community and be that store that everyone wants to come to,” said district manager Wesley McCarty. “It’s humbling, it makes you feel good.”

McCarty said the nearest Dollar Tree store to Harlan County is in Middlesboro and Barbourville.

“If there’s one person in Harlan County that’s excited about this, it’s me,” said Harlan County Judge-Executive Dan Mosley. “I love their stores, it’s obvious today that many people love the Dollar Tree experience.”

The store offering a craft area and snack zone.

“We have a larger assortment in this store because it’s a larger floor plan than most,” said McCarty. “So, by having a larger floor plan, we have a larger assortment inside the store.”

Kenneth Casteel spent the very first $1.00 at the store.

“I’m 55-years -old and I’ve never done this, I just figured it would be a good experience to have,” he said. “Something you would tell your children about or something like that.”

He said he and his wife love going to Dollar Tree stores and always stop by when they pass one. Now, they have a store in their backyard.

“You still get good products and it’s cheap that’s really what it is,” he said. “My wife and I are on a fixed income, it helps us a lot.”

The store employs 30 people, which brings job and retail growth to the county.

“We just want to be the store for the community,” said McCarty. “We want to be a place they can come to get things for their homes, and their lives and save money.”

The store’s planned hours are Monday – Saturday, 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. – 8 p.m.
