I’d like to share what a wonderful asset the Family Dollar store on U.S. 301 has been to me and my community. The one in my area has been restaffed with a young woman named Teresa Best, who was switched from another store and started managing this one.

Since Teresa has been placed in that store, what a blessing it’s been to our community. Upon her arrival, our store has been fully stocked, coordinated and clean. Employment has been given to individuals who not only spend money in the store but also live here in Wilson and surrounding areas.

For me, Family Dollar offers name-brand clothing, household items and food. Everything a home could need.

This young lady Teresa is not only a manager; she’s a working manager who always greets customers with assistance and a smile. With the store being in my community, I am there often. My mother and I come to know every salesperson by name. They are so professional, courteous and friendly, and like their manager, very focused and hardworking. And also considerate!

It means so much to me because I was stricken with a stroke in 2017 and every employee noticed and assisted me with my disability. To me, Wilson is where it’s at. Nothing but love from me and my mother.
