Maricopa’s second discount store held its grand opening and ribbon cutting Thursday morning.
However, Dollar Tree’s newest customers were ushered out of the 10,000-square-foot building soon after doors opened.
City building inspectors and the fire marshal temporarily closed Edison Pointe’s latest retail shop for a little more than an hour to perform final inspections. They did not explain the timing.
Deputy Fire Marshal Eddie Rodriguez with the Maricopa Fire/Medical Department said Dollar Tree received approval by both agencies.
“Everything is OK. They’re opened up again; business is going good as usual,” Rodriguez said.
The store is located at 20595 N. John Wayne Parkway south of Fry’s Marketplace.
