Family Dollar is one of the fastest growing discount store chains in the United States. The merchandising strategy that drives this growth provides customers with good values on basic merchandise for the family and home in a small-box, neighborhood format. Our merchandise is sold at everyday low prices in a no frills, convenient, self-service environment. Most merchandise is priced under $10.00.
Stores are located in a contiguous 45-state area ranging northeast to Maine, southeast to Florida, as far northwest as Idaho and southwest to California. Family Dollar stores generally range in size from 7,500 to 9,500 square feet, and most are operated in leased facilities. The relatively small size permits the Company to open new stores in rural areas and small towns, as well as in large urban neighborhoods. Within these markets, the stores are located in shopping centers or as freestanding buildings or in urban storefronts convenient to the Company’s value-conscious customer base.
Family Dollar is a growing Fortune 300 Company, and we couldn’t do it without our network of great vendor partners. – less
