Dollar Tree to buy Family Dollar to stave off competition

Dollar Tree Inc agreed to buy rival discount chain Family Dollar Stores Inc for $8.5 billion to fend off growing competition from Wal-Mart Stores Inc and fellow discounter Dollar General Corp .

Dollar stores have struggled in a weak U.S. economy as Wal-Mart and other large retail chains chase penny-pinching consumers by offering more items priced at $1 or less.

The deal will give Dollar Tree more than 13,000 stores across the United States and Canada, vaulting the company ahead of Dollar General to become North America's biggest discount retailer, with more than $18 billion in annual sales...

 I would say it has more to do with the popularity of resale stores, there is always a lot of people at the one near my house, while Dollar General across the street ,  is never that busy.

Course there are other items that you cannot find at resale stores.

I recently bought some aspirin at one dollar store,which is much cheaper than what you can get at the big retailers.

Last I checked the dollar store wasn't selling Platonic ideal forms instead of real physical items  Tongue
