Dollar Tree and Family Dollar: Planned Construction

[2022] Planned Dollar Tree Construction

Here, we look into Dollar Tree‘s planned construction amid the discount stores’ recent time in the news spotlight.

Dollar Tree, of course, compromised the integrity of its name when in November 2021 the store announced that it would raise prices from its traditional $1.00 to $1.25. Dollar Tree founder Macon Brock wrote in his 2017 autobiography that all of his stores’ products being $1 was essential to his company identity, and changing the price would relegate the company to the status of “just another discount retailer.”

Of course, even and especially because of this price hike, Dollar Tree isn’t just another discount retailer. Its brand is widely recognized, and many have depended upon its relative affordability to get by.
