    Following an impassioned speech by Ald. Matt O’Shea (19), the City Council voted overwhelmingly in favor of an ordinance (SO2023-0004978) that places limits on where new dollar stores may open citywide. 

    The council voted 42-7 to pass the new law, which prohibits small box retailers, stores such as Dollar Tree, Dollar General and Family Dollar, from opening within one mile of an existing dollar store owned or managed by the same company.
