Last month’s announcement that nearly 1,000 Family Dollar and Dollar Tree locations will close over the next several years could impact Methuen. Over the years, these stores have popped up across the city.

A recent roundup of the Methuen locations revealed six such discount chain stores here.

Family Dollar stores have spots at Broadway Crossing (2 Broadway, near the Lawrence line), Methuen Center (40 Jackson St.) and the Midtown Mall (246 Broadway, near Methuen Family Restaurant).

Dollar Tree stores are located at the Azores Plaza on Merrimack Street, Merrimac Plaza on Haverhill Street and Village Mall at 436 Broadway near Ellie’s Farmhouse.

The Family Dollar chain is owned by Dollar Tree. Family Dollar intends to close 600 locations this year and 370 in the future as leases expire, while Dollar Tree said it will close 30 stores as leases expire. High inflation, combined with a reduction in SNAP benefits, are blamed for the need to close, per the company.
