Dollar Tree coming to Wheeling shopping center this spring
The store is coming to the Wheeling Commons center, which is on the north side of Dundee Road and east of Huntington Lane. The space last was occupied by Vogue Furniture.
Vogue Furniture wasn't in town very long. It opened in October and closed this month, Village Manager Jon Sfondilis said.
Before Vogue, Adventure Hobbies last operated there. Adventure Hobbies closed in 2015, Sfondilis said.
Building permits for an interior renovation of the nearly 11,100-square-foot space have been issued and the Dollar Tree is expected to open for business this spring, he added.
Other tenants in the shopping center include Daisy Nail and Spa, CosmoProf, Bella's and Hair's Us.
With Dollar Tree moving in, other vacant spaces in Wheeling Commons are drawing interest from prospective tenants, said Patrick Ainsworth, Wheeling's economic development director.
"Dollar Tree will bring many patrons to this center on a daily basis," Ainsworth said. "Village staff will continue to work with the leasing team to help fill the remaining spaces and reactivate this shopping center."
Virginia-based Dollar Tree has thousands of stores across the U.S. Every item for sale costs $1 or less. Stores can be found in Buffalo Grove, Arlington Heights, Palatine, Rolling Meadows, Mount Prospect and many other suburbs.
