Family Dollar has permanently closed its east McKinney location, according to Kristin Tetreault, the COO of Family Dollar’s parent company, Dollar Tree Inc. The McKinney store, located at 617 N. McDonald St., ceased operations on Dec. 3.

“Across our 8,000-plus store base, we do open stores frequently and close stores occasionally for a variety of reasons, depending on market conditions and other factors,” Tetreault said in an email.

Family Dollar is a value store that retails a variety of household products, groceries, clothing and more, according to its website. The retail chain operates over 50 locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
