Dollar Tree embedded in its very name what it stands for: behind its doors, everything can be had for just $1. The mantra to which the Virginia company has held true for decades will now be only mostly true. After expanding nationwide from only a handful of stores in Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia, Dollar Tree is breaking the mold and will sell items in some locations that exceed the $1 grab-n-go price.
… The cost of clothes, cars, food and just about everything else has soared this year as the global economy emerges from a pandemic and Dollar Tree has not been untouched.
… The company had already begun testing higher prices at several hundred of its nearly 8,000 locations in a section of the store called “Dollar Tree Plus” with items that can go for as much as $5.
