The new offering was not good news for all, according to the New York Times report.
Latisha White, a mother of six who lives in Baltimore, expressed concerns about the decision on the company’s Facebook page.
“Family Dollar why are you selling alcohol in neighborhoods that are already infested with liquor stores,” she wrote.
“It’s basically damaging to the neighborhood,” White, 35, said in an interview. “I don’t really see a need to have that. You already have enough poison in the neighborhood.”
Representatives from the company did not respond with answers on White’s concerns to the Times. Dollar Tree has also not yet announced which locations will offer alcohol nor the alcohol’s price point.
