The location of this Family Dollar store is across from Dollar General and about half a mile from this Family Dollar store, there is Albertson supermarket. I also noticed there was a city bus stop nearby this Family Dollar store. I found this location as convenient for the residents and access to public transportation is another factor that gives people transportation options to get to work and shopping. There were plenty of parking spaces available for customers including accessible handicap parking spaces in front of the store and near the store entrance. The store environment was clean, but I did not notice whether the trash bin was placed in front of the store or not. I arrived there a little bit early around 8:50 am and I saw a few customers walked in the store ten minutes earlier than store open hour. It was kind of a surprise to see it because I did not expect the store would allow the customer to walk into the store before the open hour.
