New discounter emerges out of Dollar Tree, Family Dollar deal


CHESAPEAKE, Va. — Dollar Tree and Sycamore Partners on Monday announced that they have divested 330 Family Dollar stores to Dollar Express, a portfolio company of Sycamore Partners. 


The divestiture satisfied a condition required by the Federal Trade Commission in connection with Dollar Tree's recently-completed acquisition of Family Dollar Stores. The stores will operate under the Dollar Express banner.


“We are pleased to have completed this acquisition, which adds to our growing portfolio of leading retailers and consumer brands,” said Peter Morrow, a managing director at Sycamore Partners. “We look forward to operating these 330 stores as Dollar Express, a brand new, nationwide discount retailer that is well-positioned as an innovator in the market. We believe our significant experience with carve-out transactions will be beneficial in supporting the Dollar Express team to serve our loyal customers and create value.”
