Dollar Tree, that is where I do a lot of my shopping.

DT is a true dollar-store, as opposed to a lot of other fakey, cutesy named kinda-dollar-stores.

I guess a push is on by one of the major stock-owners of Dollar Tree to expand their inventory to include stuff that is more than a dollar. WOW, is that a good idea........then they lose their niche and
are just another fakey-fake "dollar store" along with all the other "dollar stores".


That's why one activist investor thinks it's time for Dollar Tree to raise its prices.
Jeffrey Smith, CEO of Starboard Value, a hedge fund, wrote to Dollar Tree CEO Gary Philbin Monday to disclose that his fund had taken a 1.7% stake in the bargain retailer.

Dollar Tree was my go-to for Softsoap, LA's Totally Awesome and The Works toilet cleaner. Now The Works took out the the stuff that made it WORK and it's a bust. And Walmart sells Softsoap for $1 too (although not the larger containers) and I'm there more often. I haven't been in for awhile so I should go back and see if there's anything new and exciting that I can't live without.
