Family Dollar Store representatives didn't immediately respond to messages Tuesday from The Associated Press.

OSHA says the serious violations included an emergency exit door that was locked with a scissor-like mechanism that required special knowledge to open. The four repeat violations alleged included what OSHA says were obstructed emergency exits, unsecured helium tanks and an obstructed path to the building's breaker control panels.
