Family Dollar Announces Merchandising Changes

Family Dollar Stores, Inc. (NYSE: FDO) today announced that it has named Jason Reiser to the position of Senior Vice President–Merchandising. Mr. Reiser will replace John Scanlon, who retired from the Company at the end of March.

“In our ongoing efforts to better meet the needs of our core customer and growing trade-in customer, we are excited to welcome Jason to the team,” said Family Dollar President and Chief Operating Officer, Mike Bloom. “Jason brings more than 17 years of experience in discount retail, and I am confident that his experience and familiarity with our customers will be an enormous asset to our leadership team.”

Mr. Reiser will have executive responsibility for the Company’s health, beauty, personal care and household teams. Mr. Reiser comes to Family Dollar from Sam’s Club, where he spent more than 17 years in a variety of roles, most recently serving as Vice President, Merchandising, Health and Family Care.
