New York City Five & Dime General Stores said Wednesday that it has teamed with commercial real estate firm Prime Sites to launch a national expansion initiative for the dime-store retailer.
According to Prime Sites, it will create a feasibility study on tourism markets throughout the United States. “Our goal is to provide our client -- Five & Dime General Stores -- with a comprehensive look at key locations in hard core tourism markets throughout the country,” said Daniel O’Grady of Prime Sites.
In August 1997, Woolworth’s announced it was closing all of its U.S. stores.
Five & Dime General Stores are owned and operated by UTBW (“Used To Be Woolworth’s”) LLC.
