Dollars may not grow on trees, but Dollar Tree stores work hard to bring in the green. The company operates more than 4,500 Dollar Tree, Deal$, and Dollar Bills discount stores in 48 US states and the District of Columbia, and about 140 Dollar Tree (formerly Dollar Giant) stores in Canada. Stores carry a mix of housewares, toys, seasonal items, food, health and beauty aids, gifts, and books -- most priced at $1 or less. Imports, primarily from China, account for about 40% of merchandise. The stores are located in high-traffic strip centers anchored by mass merchandisers, supermarkets, malls, and in small towns. Founded in 1986 as Dollar Tree Stores, the company later changed its name to Dollar Tree, Inc.
