Dollar Tree to consolidate support centers

September 18, 2018

MATTHEWS, N.C. (AP) — Dollar Tree says it’s planning to consolidate store support centers in a North Carolina town and a Virginia city as part of its continuing integration of Family Dollar’s organization and support functions.

News outlets report Dollar Tree said Tuesday that it is planning to consolidate store support centers in Mathews, North Carolina and Chesapeake, Virginia. Dollar Tree bought Family Dollar in 2015.

Dollar Tree said it is closing the Matthews headquarters after the consolidation, but the distribution center in the town will remain open to serve Family Dollar stores. About 700 employees have been given offers to relocate. Dollar Tree says it’ll provide job transition benefits and outplacement services to the affected workers.

The store support center consolidation is expected to be completed by fall 2019.
