Tale as old as time -
When you need to boost sales - you start selling booze.
Family Dollar is adding booze to about 1,000 of its stores to boost sales amid a massive overhaul, its parent company Dollar Tree announced Thursday.
The discount retailer added it will re-brand about 200 Family Dollar locations as Dollar Tree stores. The chain also announced plans to expand its test of selling items for more than its customary $1 price point. The products, referred to as Dollar Tree Plus!, will be offered at 100 Dollar Tree locations.
