Dollar Tree coming to west side of town, 3rd in Sumter

Retail site to be about 10,000 square feet


Sumter's third Dollar Tree is under construction on the west side of town.

A building inspection department official with the Sumter City-County Planning Commission distributed the permit for the current construction at 310 Pinewood Road recently to The Sumter Item.

The construction site is across the street from the Walmart Neighborhood Market that opened in 2018 at 343 Pinewood Road.

According to the permit, the new Dollar Tree will be about 10,000 square feet. Sumterites can expect the new discount variety store to open early next year.

According to the internet, it will be Sumter's third Dollar Tree chain location. The other two are at 1285 Broad St. near Walmart Supercenter and on U.S. 15 South in the Pocalla area.

Here's some trivia for you: Do you know how many Dollar General chain stores there are in Sumter County? According to the internet, there's 16. That's quite a few.

A couple of the newer Dollar General locations in Sumter are at 209 Broad St. and 1370 Myrtle Beach Highway, going toward the eastern portion of Sumter County.
