PORTLAND, Ore. -- State inspectors determined a Dollar Tree store in Northeast Portland cannot reopen until a rodent infestation is completely cleaned up.
Officials with the Oregon Department of Agriculture found multiple violations during a follow-up inspection this week. According to ODA reports, there was rodent feces throughout the Dollar Tree store, one dead mouse in the dairy cooler and nesting material throughout food shelving.
The Dollar Tree store in Portland’s Lloyd District temporarily closed on Aug. 21 after a KGW investigation found evidence of a rodent infestation.
