Residents Protest at Family Dollar Construction Site – Cascade Patch
“No Family Dollar” was chanted by over a dozen protesters that gathered at the site of the newest Family Dollar store on Friday, Aug. 24, located at Fairburn Road and Benjamin Mays Drive in southwest Atlanta.
The stores have been in the forefront of residents’ minds lately due to the fact that at least two stores are in the early stages of being erected in the area.
Residents continue to express disappointment and anger that these stores are multiplying in the southwest Atlanta area. A common statement, that can be heard throughout the neighborhood and at the protest from a NPU-H member is that, “Family Dollar brings crime (with it).”
