Family Dollar, the parent company of Dollar Tree - both of which sell many items for just $1 - will close 390 stores this year, the retailer has announced.
The company took a $2.73 billion charge against its Family Dollar business during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 that ended February 2, 2019.
Though Family Dollar has remodeled some stores and expanded its product range, same-store sales growth has been almost flat on average in the past two years, pushing down the parent company's shares seven per cent in the last 12 months.
Dollar Tree Inc. acquired Family Dollar in 2015 for nearly $9 billion. While Family Dollar sells items under $10, all of Dollar Tree products sell for $1.
Dollar Tree's stock price jumped from $95.14 per share to $97.68 on March 6 after news of the store closures broke. The total number of stores closed may change depending on the company's ability to achieve material rent concessions from landlords.
"The underperformance at Family Dollar since the acquisition has persisted long enough", Smith said. "Annual savings for the Dollar Tree banner are estimated to be more than $60 million in indirect procurement (including capital expenditures), and more than $70 million in initial merchandise cost".
