Big Creek Crossing property manager James Younger has confirmed plans for a Dollar Tree retail franchise to open in the south end of the mall.

The store is expected to open in the fall. It will be located in half of the former Fashion Bug space as well as the location recently vacated by Habitat for Humanity Re-Store.

The Re-Store, which serves as the major fundraising mechanism for the Christian ministry, was asked to move from its previous location due to a possible new tenant moving in. It is being relocated at the former G&L Tire building on the south end of the parking lot.

Younger previously said Big Creek Crossing was in the final stages of negotiations with two new tenants, and hoped to make two announcements in short order.
