Based out of Chesapeake, Virginia, they’ve also become the foremost discount retailer of dollar stores with over 13,851 locations in total. This is due in part to their 2015 acquisition of Family Dollar Stores, Inc., which added 8200 new locations to the company.

They have stores flourishing in all markets, from metro to smaller rural areas. Suburban middle class customers are the true dollar store demographic, given that store locations are positioned in areas where the majority of middle class customers will frequent.

Their retail location building dimensions will be found anywhere between eight and ten thousand sq. ft. for a Dollar Tree store, and from six to eight thousand sq. ft. for a Family Dollar.
