Like everyone else, I was thumbing through Facebook on my phone yesterday and I came across a story that all Dollar Tree stores will be closing up shop for good by October 1, 2017.  I instantly thought, gee there goes another retail outlet and one that seems to have quite a few shoppers there every time I drive by it.  I never gave any thought to it after that.

I told some co-workers today what I had heard and they were also surprised by the news. It led us to find out more and the 'more' is that it was another case of fake news and the story is a bogus one.

There is no plan to shut down the Dollar Tree store in Quincy or any Dollar Tree stores around the country. It's another case of  you can't believe everything you see on Facebook.
