ANN ARBOR, MI — An Ann Arbor Dollar Tree has abruptly closed, according to a sign posted on its door Thursday, Jan. 20.

“Store closed until further notice. I’ve quit. I’m sorry,” reads a notice posted to the door, signed “the only manager.”

The store is located at 325 N. Maple Road. A second sign notifies customers the location’s hours are frequently changing due to “factors like Truck Day and being short staffed.”

Dollar Tree has two locations in Ann Arbor and three in the Ypsilanti area. The company, known for pricing nearly everything at $1 or less, announced in November it would be rolling out a permanent price increase for the first time in 35 years. Dollar Tree cited the rising cost of goods and store operations as the reason for the increase.

It is unclear how long the store will remain closed. Dollar Tree did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Maple Road store is typically open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday and Wednesday through Saturday, with closures on Sunday and Tuesday, according to a notice on the door.

Seems like there are several factors that the store closed: rising costs of operations and short staffed. It's getting harder and harder for retail stores to stay afloat. I'm seeing more and more empty windows and stores in our downtown streets :(
