Get ready for another dollar store in Owensboro. Building permits have been issued to Dollar Tree for a location at the south end of Frederica Street near Target.

Per permits, the Dollar Tree will redevelop the existing building at 5221 Frederica Street. This building formerly housed Lifeway Christian Store and Pier 1 Imports, which closed permanently in 2019 and 2020 respectively.

The total area of ​​the building comprises nearly 15,500 square feet. According to the building permit, the renovation will cost just over $382,000. The building permit has been issued to Viper Construction.

Dollar Tree already has three locations in Owensboro: 3980 Frederica Street (in the Sherwood Plaza mall near the ring road); 1761 West Parrish Avenue (near Owensboro Catholic High School); and 3500 Villa Point Drive (just off KY 54).

At the end of 2021, Dollar Tree announced that it would increase prices by $1 to $1.25 in all stores nationwide by the end of the first quarter of 2022.

Dollar stores abound in the Owensboro area. Earlier this month, the Owensboro Times reported that a building permit had recently been issued to build a new Dollar General in Maceo, making it the company’s 17th site in Daviess County.
