Dollar Tree May Shed More Stores to Buy Family Dollar
Dollar Tree said it may need to divest more stores than expected to satisfy antitrust regulators reviewing its planned acquisition of Family Dollar Stores. Dollar Tree has previously said it expects to divest fewer than 300 stores to satisfy the regulators reviewing a deal that would create the No. 1 discount store chain in the United States. In a filing on Tuesday, the company said the U.S. Federal Trade Commission was reviewing more than 500 stores and that it may identify additional stores for review in the future.
