Dollar Tree breaks the $1 barrier


Dollar Tree, the national chain of stores that promises everything for a buck, will begin introducin­g items on its shelves that will exceed $1. The company said this week that it’s responding to customer requests and said pushing the $1 barrier will allow for a better mix of products. However, the change to prices at Dollar Tree, which have been unchanged for decades, comes with inflation rising above 4 percent in July. Prices have risen across the spectrum as the global economy emerges from the pandemic.
