Why Invest

When it comes to getting value for everyday items for the entire family in an easy to shop, neighborhood location, Family Dollar is the best place to go. One of the nation’s fastest growing retailers, Family Dollar offers a compelling assortment of merchandise for the whole family ranging from household cleaners to name brand foods, from health and beauty aids to toys, from apparel for every age to home fashions, all for everyday low prices. While shoppers can find many items at $1 or less, most items in the store are priced below $10, which makes shopping fun without stretching the family budget.

When the Company opened its first store in November 1959 in Charlotte, North Carolina, nothing sold for more than $2. Now, more than 50 years later; Family Dollar has grown to more than 8,100 stores in 46 states with sales in excess of $10 billion. Over time, the merchandise mix has evolved, but the principal that drives the business the same – satisfy the customer and the customer will return.

As shoppers enter their neighborhood Family Dollar, they’ll find great values on the name brands they trust in a clean, well-organized store staffed with friendly team members who are members of the local community. The average size of a Family Dollar store is approximately 7,000 square feet, and most stores are operated in leased facilities. This relatively small footprint allows the Company to open new stores in rural areas and small town, as well as in large urban neighborhoods. Within these markets, the stores are located in shopping centers or as free-standing building and all are convenient to the Company’s customer base.

Family Dollar, headquartered in Matthews, North Carolina, just outside of Charlotte, operates ten full-service, highly automated distribution facilities throughout the country.

The company has been publicly held corporation since 1970 and its Common Stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol FDO.

Family Dollar offers a compelling mix of merchandise for the whole family. Ranging from an expanded assortment of refrigerated and frozen foods and health and beauty items to home décor and seasonal items, Family Dollar offers the lowest possible price, the name brand and quality private-brand merchandise customers need and use every day.
