Dollar Tree coming to downtown Red Deer

The former Fields store in downtown Red Deer is poised to return to retail life.

The former Fields store in downtown Red Deer is poised to return to retail life.

Dollar Tree is expected to open at the 4719 49 Ave. premises next week. It will be Red Deer’s second Dollar Tree, with the first operating in Bower Plaza at 2325 Gaetz Ave. since late last year.

Dollar Tree Canada officials declined to comment on the store’s opening.

However, the company’s website lists houseware, dinnerware, cleaning supplies, food, health and beauty supplies, toys, books and seasonal décor as among the merchandise carried. All items are priced at $1.25 or less.

Dollar Tree Canada is operated by Dollar Tree Inc., a Virginia-based chain of discount variety stores with more than 4,700 outlets.

It arrived in Canada three years ago with the purchase of 86 Dollar Giant Stores.

The Red Deer Fields store closed early in 2012, as did its counterparts in Innisfail, Olds, Rimbey, Ponoka and elsewhere across Canada. That chain was owned by Hudson Bay Co.
