Family Dollar signed leases for at least 10 locations across South Carolina, including one in Greenville.
After announcing a 6.1% drop in revenue from the same period last year, the discount retailer said it would also slow its expansion plans from 525 new stores to 350-400 stores in fiscal 2014, according to a press release.
Family Dollar has plans for two new stores in Columbia and one each in Greenville, Ninety Six, North Charleston, Beaufort, New Ellenton, Rock Hill, Summerville and Sumter.
Construction has already begun on the 8,000-sq. ft. stand-alone structure and is slated to open this fall.
