"Today's big news is that Matthews-based Family Dollar is being bought out by rival Dollar General."

Um, no. It isn't.

This is sad, because it means another locally-owned family business is being bought out by a nationwide chain. Slowly but surely Charlotte is losing its identity business by business.

The first picture is 121 W. Trade St, the building in the background is 129 W Trade. I wonder if those are the same building now occupied by Hooters and Tilt.

Wrong !!!

Family Dollar bought out by Dollar Tree in Hampton Roads VA
(Chesapeake) for 8.5 billion

NYC Wall St investor Carl Ichan worth 25 billion bought FD a couple weeks ago and dumped it for 3 billion profit.

Does Levin feel like a dummie or what? Levin owns 30% of the NFL team with Richardson who owns 51%.
