It’s not typically a place you would expect to find booze, but Family Dollar says they will being selling it in approximately 1,000 of their stores. The move is an effort to help boost sales for the struggling chain, Mass Live reports.

In the first quarter of this year, the company added alcoholic beverages to 45 stores. Freezers and coolers were expanded in 55 stores.

According to The New York Times, a media relations manager for the company, would not comment on the price, types of alcohol that would be sold, or which exact locations would be stocked with the beverages.

Dollar Tree, the company that bought the Family Dollar chain in 2015, says their sales have slowed since then. So much—they expect to close about 390 Family Dollar locations this fiscal years.

The company will also re-brand about 200 Family Dollar Stores as Dollar Tree.
