FierceRetail: Family Dollar ‘misled,’ rejects takeover bid by Dollar General

August 21, 2014

CEO James Gellert discusses the ongoing “Dollar Wars.” He contends that of the three involved retailers, Dollar Tree has the strongest financial health, with a rating of 78 on Rapid Ratings’ 1-100 scale, compared to Dollar General (70) and Family Dollar (73). “Dollar Tree really stands out as the one doing the most with the least,” Gellert said. “Bottom line, all are in quite strong financial health positions but the one that seems to get the most short shrift in the discussion here is Dollar Tree, and it is the strongest.”
