Article from The Piscataquis Observer, Vol. 165, No. 14, April 02, 2003

MILO One of the self-proclaimed "fastest growing discount store chains in the United States" is coming to Milo.

The Charlotte, N.C.-based Family Dollar owner / operator of 24 discount stores in Maine and more than 4,700 stores across the nation plans to open for business in the former Rite Aid location at 55 Park Street, adjacent Milo Farmers Union, in May, according to Florence Stanley, company spokesperson.

Stanley said the company's selection of the location or reasoning as to why the company is locating in this town is not public. She said the company does plan to lease the 6,600 square-feet of commercial property from the building's owner, Fred Trask of Lakeview Plantation.
