Perry and a Ben Franklin variety store in Wands Corner, Norfolk, Virginia, and to Macon Brock's, Doug Perry's (son of K.R. Perry), and Ray Compton's adventure into $1.00 retailing.

One of the nation's fastest growing retailers, Family Dollar offers a compelling assortment of merchandise for the whole family, ranging from household cleaners, brand-name foods, and health and beauty aids to toys, apparel for every age, and home fashions — all for everyday low prices.
