Reconsider the new Family Dollar @ 2001 James Jackson Pkwy NW in Atlanta

Please reconsider opening a new Family Dollar at 2001 James Jackson Pkwy NW in Atlanta.  Construction of a Family Dollar has already begun at the corner of Bolton and Marietta Rd. The second planned Family Dollar would bookend the Riverside community. We do NOT need 2 this close together in our neighborhood (2 within a .75 mile radius). It will only bring down the neighborhood we have all been trying so hard to improve. We are asking that Family Dollar reconsider this location and NOT build.

Letter to
Divisional VP, Family Dollar Gerald Martin
Please reconsider opening a new Family Dollar at 2001 James Jackson Pkwy NW in Atlanta. Construction of a Family Dollar has already begun at the corner of Bolton and Marietta Rd. The second planned Family Dollar would bookend the Riverside community. We do NOT need 2 this close together in our neighborhood (2 within a .75 mile radius). There is no need, reason, or justification for a second Family Dollar to be built, and in such close proximity to the first (outside of blatant corporate greed trying to secure an area and cement and extend the low-income demographic you cater to). We do not want you in our neighborhood a second time - our neighborhood is a beautifully diverse community that is trying very hard to improve through bringing in local businesses, restaurants, shops, etc, that will improve the area, bring value to our neighborhood, and improve the quality of life here. Your stores do not achieve any of those aims. We will not shop in your store at James Jackson and Bolton. The presence of your second business is **not welcome** there. We are asking that Family Dollar reconsider this location and NOT build.
