The outlet is located at 1513 Charlotte Highway, Lancaste, and spans over 8, 000ft2.

Employing about 10, the store retails all food items, clothing and assorted household products.

Family Dollar's Chairman and CEO Howard Levine said, "We have over 200 stores in South Carolina, so it certainly is a great fit for us to open this landmark store in the state. We've provided our customers with value and convenience over the last fifty-three years in each of our stores across the country, and we look forward to bringing the same service and quality merchandise to this new store in Lancaster."

Family Dollar, which retails 90% of the products at less than $10, has reported 5.8% rise in net sales year-over-year to $2.5bn and net income of $102.2m in fourth quarter.
