Dollar Tree Buying Family Dollar Could Be Bad News For Coca-Cola And Clorox




Associated Press


Dollar Tree announced today that it is buying Family Dollar.

Together, the dollar stores will be bigger than current industry leader Dollar General.

But the merger could "exert pressures on major food, household goods, and drink suppliers, including Pepsi, Hershey, and Clorox," Brian Sozzi, chief equities strategist at Belus Capital Advisors, writes in an op-ed for CNBC.

Proctor & Gamble, Coca-Cola, and Unilever could also be affected, he says.

Why Dollar Tree, Family Dollar and Dollar General Aren't the Same Store


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- When Dollar Tree (DLTR_) announced it would buy Family Dollar(FDO_), many analysts leaped to the conclusion this represented consolidation in the dollar-store space, perhaps even a new challenge to Walmart (WMT_)

TheStreet.Com recently visited Dollar Tree, Family Dollar and a unit of Dollar General (DG_), the leader in the deep discount category, to learn what the differences are.

The more I read, the more I see this being about Walmart being in trouble. I don't really care either way.

It sounds a bit contradictory to be a "family" store that is now selling not just junk food but tobacco too. Family Dollar sees opportunity with expanded consumables and is going with it. In its conference call, Levine stated, "Our refrigerated and frozen cooler program remains a high priority initiative to drive trips and build the basket ... sales have been robust."




Is Dollar Tree's New Marriage To Family Dollar A Sinful Move?


Family Dollar, Dollar Tree (NASDAQ:DLTR), and Dollar General (NYSE:DG) have been growing sales among their consumable offerings, especially with food, drink, and tobacco products. The increase in budget-conscious consumers has resulted higher sales of these items at discount variety stores.

The result is two-fold. First, there is the sale itself of these items which helps directly obviously. Then there is the indirect effect where people coming in for say a bag of chips or cookies, a pack of cigarettes, or a six-pack of beer then pick up some other items as well as long as they are in there.

An Odd Tale Of Family Dollar and Dollar Tree

The New York Times is carrying an odd piece complaining about the merger of Family Dollar and Dollar Tree DLTR +2.38%. Part of it is obviously entirely fine: indeed it’s an interesting little piece of analysis at that point. But the conclusion that is then leapt to betrays a really rather odd view of what happens when one company buys another one. The author seems to think that one company might spend billions of dollars to buy another one in order to close it down. Which is just an odd way of thinking someone might spend billions of dollars.

The piece is here:
