Boozy Bargain: Family Dollar Stores Will Start Selling Alcohol
Family Dollar will be selling alcoholic beverages in approximately 1,000 stores.
It’s not typically a place you would expect to find booze, but Family Dollar will be selling alcoholic beverages in approximately 1,000 stores. The company said the move is an effort to help boost sales for the struggling chain, Mass Live reported.
In the first quarter of this year, the company added alcoholic drinks to 45 stores. Freezers and coolers were expanded in 55 stores.
According to The New York Times, a media relations manager for the company would not comment on the price, types of alcohol that would be sold, or which locations would be stocked with the adult beverages.
Dollar Tree, the company that bought the Family Dollar chain in 2015, said sales have slowed since then. So much so that they expect to close about 390 Family Dollar locations this fiscal years.
The company will also rebrand about 200 Family Dollar Stores as Dollar Tree.
