KREMMLING – The well-known chain Family Dollar has found a home in the heart of Kremmling.

“Family Dollar” is a dollar store company that has over 7,000 locations across the nation. Construction for the highly anticipated dollar store started mid-June and is anticipated to be complete by the end of this summer.

Having a new business come to the town of Kremmling is stirring up many different emotions from community members. Some residents say they are excited the new business will create jobs in town. Also, townspeople are hopeful the new dollar store can attract business from travelers and locals alike.

Although the new dollar store may be a profitable business for Kremmling, the store’s character is leaving some locals questioning the town’s design guidelines. Town officials responded saying every Family Dollar across the nation has the same look with the same metal exterior and the signature red roof. The only way a Family Dollar building would look different is if they rebuilt the inside of an already standing structure. Each of the dollar store’s buildings are built from the ground up and have a standard design for construction. Many locals believe the Family Dollar is here to stay.
