MANSFIELD -- Dollar General is considering a new location at Mansfield's former Family Video store, according to a company representative.

Mary Kathryn Colbert, of Dollar General's public relations department confirmed to Richland Source that Dollar General was in a "due diligence phase" for a possible store at 198 Park Ave. West. 

"This means we are reviewing the opportunity to add a new store in the area, but we have not committed to doing so just yet. Based on our current timeline, we should have a final decision on this in the coming weeks," Colbert said via email. 

Earlier this month, Family Video announced plans to close with signs on its doors.

“This location is open only to sell product, no more rentals of any kind after May 4, 2019,” one sign on the video rental store's door read. “We appreciate your loyalty over the years. Please come in and browse our for sale products. Also ask about racks, fixtures and countertops.”

A second sign offered another “thank you” to customers.

“We are proud to have served this community for years, but this store is closing. Take advantage of our Liquidation prices on everything in the store,” this sign read.
