I never cared for Dollar General or Family Dollar. I could not understand why so many shopped there. Then I paid attention to where they were located and it made sense. Many of their products are a great deal higher priced and you don't get as much. However is is close to neighborhoods and they can walk to them. Dollar Tree on the other hand was just a dollar for their products. I tell ya, they have some really cute things for just a dollar. Place mats, hand towels, ornaments, cards, gum, candy! You can't beat it. I am not sure I would ever purchase meat from there but all that other stuff, yes I will and do.

Dollar Tree and Family Dollar is like Pepsi and Coca-Cola, is there really a difference?
There is a major difference. Unless dollar tree is not going to keep everything in it's store $1.00 Family dollar is nothing like Dollar tree.

Coke and Pepsi look the same but that is the only likeness.

Should Dollar Tree Inc. Be Worried About This New Rival?

Is there room in the market for another deep discount chain? One private equity firm seems to think so




... Dollar Express, which will also offer a mixed-price platform -- but one which promises "innovation" -- has the potential to be a thorn in the side of Dollar Tree, which is tasked with integrating the Family Dollar chain and its completely different business model. As that chain now accounts for more than half of Dollar Tree's revenues, and is also a lower-margin, struggling enterprise, this new competitor could present more trouble than its size would suggest ....

THERE'S A NEW KID IN TOWN. DOLLAR EXPRESS WAS FORMED FOLLOWING THE MERGER OF DOLLAR TREE AND FAMILY DOLLAR, AND THOUGH IT'S STILL SMALL, THERE'S PLENTY OF POTENTIAL TO GROW. PHOTO: DOLLAR EXPRESS.

Dollar General, Dollar Tree Show Main Street Retail Outperforms the Mall
Dollar General and Dollar Tree report earnings Thursday



If you travel through many areas of America, you may not find a shopping mall anywhere. However, you will very likely find a Dollar General (DG) or a Dollar Tree (DLTR) .

8 Worst Things to Buy at Dollar Stores
These discount retailers stock plenty of bargains, but some of the merchandise isn’t worth the buck


A $1 price tag doesn’t make an item a bargain. If you find yourself filling your basket with dollar-store buys that you never use because the quality is poor or the brand is unfamiliar, then you’re simply wasting money. Hey, a buck is a buck – and they add up over time ...

Canned goods. The $1 price tag is the lure. But is it really a value? Not during our price checks. For instance, a 15.5 ounce can of Goya red kidney beans was $1 at Dollar Tree. At a nearby Giant supermarket, the same size can cost 79 cents. Supermarkets frequently mark down prices on canned goods, and supermarket store brands are especially cheap even when they aren’t on sale.

Eye researched. All are Jewish owned including WalMart. So who care if they all disappear from the common market. Nice post!

Good point ... Like Wal-Mart replaced Sears, something else would replace Wal-Mart, its never ending though, the Dollar is King.

Why deep discount is winning retail


... The headlines focused on declining enrollment in food stamps just as pressure on food prices picks up.

But one quarter’s worth of disappointing results doesn’t mean business is going south.

In fact, in Dollar General’s second quarter report management reported that sales rose 5.8%, with same-store sales up 0.7%. Dollar Tree also reported an increase in same-store sales of 1.7% ...

Dollar General is starting to look a lot like Wal-Mart

As investors question whether Dollar General (DG)'s footprint is getting too large, the retailer needs to prove that new stores aren't the only way it can grow sales. To do so, the chain is taking a few pages straight out of Wal-Mart (WMT)'s playbook ...

Dollar Tree accused of squashing spinoff


Dollar Tree, a giant dollar-store retailer, has been accused in court of plotting to “kill” a smaller rival whose stores it spun off two years earlier as part of a merger deal. Dollar Tree, which merged with Family Dollar in 2015 to create a 13,000-store behemoth, systematically crushed fledgling chain Dollar Express after helping create it by divesting 323 locations in a concession to the Federal Trade Commission to satisfy anti-trust concerns about the merger, according to a lawsuit filed this week in Delaware court ...
