Newark, New Jersey: The City of Newark now has another dollar store.
Dollar Tree opened another location earlier this spring across from the Springfield Avenue Marketplace at 189 Springfield Avenue, between Charlton Street and Prince Street. The store is the third location in Newark. Other stores operate in Vailsburg and the Ironbound, though the company also owns Family Dollar stores.
The Springfield Avenue store was built at the site of a lot which had sat vacant for several years. Only recently, with the construction of 24 Jones, ShopRite, Sonic, and other businesses, is the area seeing redevelopment.
