Our roots go back more than 60 years. To appreciate how it all came to pass, you have to rewind more than half a century to K.R. 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. A highly successful concept was created using this single price point to build a national chain of stores.
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. While shoppers can find many items at $1 or less, most items in the store are priced below $10, which makes shopping fun without stretching the family budget.
In 1958, a 21-year-old entrepreneur with an interest in merchandising became intrigued with the idea of operating a low-overhead, self-service retail store. Leon Levine believed he could offer his customers a variety of high-quality, good value merchandise for under $2. Because he had grown up in his family's retail store, he understood value, quality, and customer satisfaction.
