Dollar Tree isn’t talking, but we now know the South Paris Family Dollar is closing with plenty of speculation online about other locations identified for closure, like Poland.

Dollar Tree, the parent company of Family Dollar announced March 13 it planned to close 600 locations by June and another 370 by the end of the year.

The closures only affect Family Dollar this year but will expand to include 30 underperforming Dollar Tree locations as their leases expire.

Other Family Dollar locations in the region include two in Lewiston, Auburn, Sabattus, Greene and Lisbon Falls.
