well, you knew that would happen after the buy-out.
Family Dollar does not have Dollar Tree's "desired demographic".

Dollar General has twice as many stores as Family Dollar' so FD shoppers whose store closes just need to drive to the next strip mall for the same junk. Neither of which overlapped the pricing or merchandise lines as Dollar Tree.

Well, redundancy doesn't make sense.

It's a retail store, not a critical hydraulic line on a helicopter or airplane.

Some Family Dollar stores are in small, rural areas where there are no direct competitors. It won't be as simple as the residents driving to the next strip mall.
