White House Dollar Tree Closing

Smokey received word that the Dollar Tree in White House located at
301 Richard Wilkes Rd is going to close its doors on April 19th.

tea ad 300Customers have been collecting signatures on a petition in hopes it will sway corporate executives to keep the store open. Dollar Tree management has  confirmed the store is closing. With hopes of keeping the store open there has even been talk of protesting the closing by some loyal customers. If you would like to sign the petition you may do so at the store.

Though they are not saying why the store is being closed it is unlikely that a petition or even a protest will have much of an effect on corporate decisions. A business is a business, if sales are good they stay, if not they try a new location, it’s just all part of the retail business world. We couldn’t find any precedence where a business had decided to stay open due to a strong response like petitions or protests from the community but it seems logical to assume that it must have happened at some point. Even if publicity on the closing did generate more business for the store, it would need to be sustained business,  retailers are run by statistics, especially the larger chain stores.

What do you think, should they stay? Here’s your chance to tell them why.

    I don’t shop in there every week but The Dollar Tree is the place I get my gift bags, Christmas hats, cellophane bags for gift baskets, poster board for school projects, cheap books and word finds, kids toys for stockings, etc., and tins for Christmas goodies. I will miss the store. Guess I’ll have to shop in Hendersonville now and they’ll get my tax dollars.

    TO THOSE WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE REPORTING OF THIS STORY:THIS LITTLE DOLLAR TREE ISN’T JUST FOR THOSE WHO LIVE COMFORTABLY. THIS STORE IS FOR EVERY SINGLE MOM RAISING CHILDREN ON MINIMUM WAGE WHO OTHERWISE COULD NOT AFFORD BIRTHDAY DECOR OR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS. I MAKE A DECENT WAGE BUT IN THIS ECONOMY I STILL HAVE TO SAVE EVERY PENNY AND LIVE PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK. AND WHAT ABOUT THE STORE TAKING UP TOYS AND FOOD FOR OUR SOLDIERS AND THEIR FAMILIES. THIS STORE HAS BEEN A GIFT TO OUR COMMUNITY. THIS STORE IS A MONEY MAKING STORE AND THERE IS NO REASON TO CLOSE IT. IF THEY CLOSE OUR WHITE HOUSE STORE TO BUILD UP THE SPRINGFIELD ONE…..I WOULD NEVER DRIVE THAT FAR TO GO TO THE DOLLAR TREE. I WOULDN’T SUPPORT THE CORPORATE DECISION TO DIS-ENFRANCHISE OUR COMMUNITY AND GIVE THEM ONE MORE DOLLAR. SO YES, THIS IS NEWS. YES, THIS AFFECTS THE WHITE HOUSE COMMUNITY AND YES THIS AFFECTS EVERY MOTHER AND EVERY HOUSEHOLD. IT IS TIME THE COMMUNITY STANDS UP FOR THE LITTLE STORE THAT HAS BLESSED OUR COMMUNITY.

    This is ridiculous that you report on something like this. How about reporting on the subdivision in Coopertown spewing tons human feces into a creek flowing into Cedar Hill? How about some REAL news!

    Do not close the White House store. Our community needs this store. Even if you open a larger store in Springfield or Hendersonville, I will not drive nor shop in those areas. Why close the store?
