Following a 10-minute executive session for land acquisition on Monday, Pleasanton City Councilman Jake Mattingley said a representative of Family Dollar/Dollar Tree “chose us because of our location” to build a store.
Mattingley said the corporation usually targets larger cities, such as Harrisonville, Mo., and Fort Scott, but this time they looked at Pleasanton for a future 10,000 square feet retail store.
City Attorney Burton Harding said of the executive session, “We were approached by a business that wants to buy a couple of lots.”
He said City Administrator Teresa Whitaker needed to show the council the contract so they could proceed with the deal.
