Our vendors aren't just vendors.
Since the day we opened our first store in 1986, Dollar Tree's success has been a reflection of the company we keep. When it comes to offering our customers quality, value, and variety for $1, we believe in the strength of working with our vendors as partners to grow our respective businesses.
We believe that if you treat your vendor partners fairly and honestly, they will treat you the same way. In addition to our focus on ethical business practices, we strive to maintain a trustworthy and honest relationship with our vendors. Our Code of Ethics (485K) outlines our expectations from both Dollar Tree associates and our vendor community. We strongly abide by these codes and continue to build mutually rewarding relationships with both new and existing vendors.
