Family Dollar is a regional chain of variety stores in the United States. It opened in 1959 and operates approximately 7,100 stores in 45 states and the District of Columbia. It is headquartered in Matthews, North Carolina.
Family Dollar is not a true “dollar store” in the strict sense; while there are many items available for $1, there are other price points as well. However, approximately 90% of the products cost less than $10. With most locations set up like a typical supermarket, the chain deals in food items, clothing and assorted household products.
Some, but not all, Family Dollar stores now accept credit cards, as well as debit cards and the cash benefit from EBT (food stamp) cards.
As of August 2011 there were 7,000 stores in 44 states. According to their website, in 2005 Family Dollar opened 500 new stores, 350 more in 2006, and an additional 300 in 2007.
Family Dollar operates nine distribution centers to keep product stock in their stores. These warehouses feature over 900,000 square feet (84,000 m2) of room and over nine miles (14 km) of conveyor, and employ around 400 people.
