Family Dollar Expands Food Assortment

Family Dollar (NYSE:FDO), one of the fastest-growing discount retail chains in the country, announced today it is introducing more than 400 new food items in each of its more than 8,000 stores across the country.

“At Family Dollar, our focus is solely on our customer. It’s important for us to constantly evaluate our assortment, making sure that we have the products and National Brands that are relevant to her and her family, always at a great everyday value,” said Jason Reiser, Family Dollar Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer. “I am excited to add these new food items to our already robust assortment, and I am confident that our customers will be impressed by the expanded selection we have to offer.”

As part of the new food rollout, television personality, best-selling author and chef, Pat Neely, will participate in several special events to spread the word about the great values customers can find in-store, including:

  • A recipe challenge to make a meal for four for just $15.00, with a grand prize of cooking with Pat Neely in his Memphis home;
  • A special joint-program with Feeding America aimed at giving children a healthy start to the day

“Good, homemade food that’s made from the heart is what I’m all about. I am thrilled to team up with Family Dollar as they add even more quality food choices to their store shelves,” Pat Neely explained. “Whether you’re making a quick weeknight meal, a fun lunch for your kids or a side for your family reunion, Family Dollar has everything you need to make your dish delicious, all at everyday low prices.”

“Pat brings a down-to-earth style and flair that resonates with Family Dollar and our customers,” continued Mr. Reiser. “We are excited to welcome Pat to the Family Dollar family. He’s a great ambassador for us as we expand our food assortment.”
