Dollar Tree announces new locations including plan for Family Dollar combination stores

PHILADELPHIA -- Dollar Tree said Wednesday that it will open new stores this year, continuing dollar store chains' torrid growth across the United States.

The announcement comes as the pandemic has taken a toll on many retailers and forced thousands of stores to close. But dollar stores have surged as economically-strapped customers seek out bargains on food, household essentials and other items. Dollar Tree said Wednesday that sales at stores open for at least one year increased % during the 13 weeks ending Jan. 30, compared with the same stretch a year ago.

The company, which also owns the Family Dollar chain, will open Dollar Tree stores and Family Dollar stores this year. The two chains combined have nearly 15, US locations and last year opened around stores.

Dollar Tree has a treasure hunt-like atmosphere in stores and caters to suburban, middle-income shoppers. It carries primarily seasonal goods, toys, stationary, home decor, kitchenware, and party items. Family Dollar is tailored to lower-income shoppers in rural and urban areas, and stocks more food and household basics than Dollar Tree.

All products at Dollar Tree sell for $1, although the chain is testing out a new initiative to sell select products from $1 to $5. Family Dollar sells most of its merchandise at various prices under $

New "combination" stores coming
Dollar Tree has lagged rival Dollar General in recent years. Dollar General has been opening roughly 1, stores a year and now has upwards of 16, US locations. The company caters mainly to low-and-middle-income customers in rural and suburban areas.

Dollar Tree announced a plan Wednesday to crack the rural market by opening 50 new "combination stores" that feature elements of Dollar Tree and Family Dollar outlets and sell a mix of merchandise - Dollar Tree's typical $1 seasonal items plus Family Dollar's food and essentials for more than $1.

The concept is targeted at towns with 3, to 4, people, and Dollar Tree sees an opportunity to open around 3, of these stores.

Analysts say the new concept combines the appeal of both chains into one store.

"Dollar Tree generally has a better customer perception so it helps to brand the store with that banner, but the markets the company is targeting seem best served by Family Dollar," Joseph Feldman, analyst at Telsey Advisory Group, said in an email. "The small markets Dollar Tree is targeting are underserved, which is why they are going after them."

Dollar General, meanwhile, is testing a new store concept of its own: Popshelf. The new stores feature a range of home and beauty goods, the majority of which will be priced around $5. Popshelf stores target women in suburban areas that earn between $50, and $, a year.

CORRECTION: This story has been corrected to reflect that Dollar Tree did not announce a specific starting price point for its Dollar Tree Plus! products.

____

Dollar Tree, the chain of stores famous for selling products for just $1, is launching new Dollar Tree Plus! products that could be offered at prices higher than $1 in more than stores.

Dollar Tree President and CEO Gary Philbin announced the move Thursday in reporting first quarter results, while also relaying to investors that the chain's Family Dollar turnaround is gaining traction. 

“Dollar Tree continues to be a destination for customers looking for great values and convenience, as demonstrated by our 45th consecutive quarter of delivering an increase in same-store sales," Philbin said. "And, we are excited to kick off the initial introduction of Dollar Tree Plus! multi-price point products into select test stores. These products are designed to provide our shoppers with More Choices, More Sizes, and More Savings. We are in the process of expanding this test to more than Dollar Tree stores."

Dollar Tree says the lifting of the $1 price point restriction is not raising retail on its current offerings priced at $1. 

"With its ‘Everything’s a Dollar’ model, Dollar Tree has remained one of the most unique, differentiated and defensible brand concepts in all of value retail," Philbin said. "However, we have always been a ‘test-and-learn’ organization that is committed to evaluating all opportunities to deliver great value for our customers while driving long-term value creation. During this test, we look forward to measuring and assessing the initial results and understanding if the introduction of multiple price points across a broader set of stores is in the best interests of our customers, Company and shareholders.”

In March, Dollar Tree announced it was closing up to Family Dollar stores this year, and rebranding more under the Dollar Tree banner. During the first quarter, Dollar Tree opened 91 stores, expanded or relocated 11 stores, and closed 16 Family Dollar stores and nine Dollar Tree stores. Additionally, the company opened 45 Dollar Tree stores that were re-bannered from Family Dollar, according to company reports.

Paris is home to two Family Dollars, one on Clarksville Street and another on Bonham Street, in addition to a Dollar Tree on Lamar Avenue.

It was Canada's fourth largest operator of dollar stores. Dollar Tree has since rebranded all of its Dollar Giant stores to Dollar Tree; these were the first retail locations outside of the United States operated by Dollar Tree. The company now operates stores across Canada, concentrated in Western Canada and Ontario. Dollar Tree Canada's merchandising team is located in Mississauga, Ontario, while its corporate office remains in Burnaby in Greater Vancouver.[26]
