Latest Family Dollar Project Showing Signs of Life

The chain will soon open its doors at 5100 N. Florida Avenue in Seminole Heights.

It's slated to open sometime in the next few months.

To prepare for Family Dollar's newest Seminole Heights location at 5100 N. Florida Avenue, beige trim recently accompanied the coats of stark white paint being applied to the chain store.

Crews worked at the site earlier this week, making preparations to erect the ubiquitous "Family Dollar" sign along Florida Avenue.

Despite controversy surrounding the opening of another white, block-style Family Dollar in the neighborhood, some say the latest aesthetic changes aren't that drastic.

"I don't think the building has changed much," said Greg Curtis, co-owner of Cleanse Apothecary, 5127 N. Florida Avenue. "They painted it, and now, they're putting signs up. I think it's here, whether you support it or not."

Do you think Family Dollar's architectural design fits in with the rest of Seminole Heights? Do you plan to shop there? Tell us in the comments.

It's moving into an existing building so the architecture question is a moot point. It looks like everything around it and how it did before except it is painted and the windows are showing.

While I believe in your right to protest,I think you might find a better use of your energy than to protest a building that has been improved and cleaned up and is going to open regardless. Good luck!
