Thread regarding Family Dollar Stores Inc. layoffs

370 layoffs in Family Dollar stores in Mathews to ensure more Dollar Tree jobs in Chesapeake?!

Dollar Tree is cutting cost by eliminating 370 jobs in Family Dollar Stores in Mathews, but moving forward with a plan to develop 70 acres at its headquarters in Chesapeake?! They said the development plan will allow about a 100 new jobs a year in Chesapeake over the next 6 years.

It s---s for the Matthews people, but they're part of the Dollar Tree corporation now, so it makes sense that DLTR would want all the shared services people in Chesapeake. A significant hit to the Charlotte economy, but DLTR owes it to their shareholders to be efficient. Also this merger drama has been going on for 2 years so anybody who stayed at FD all this time was betting against the odds. They've had 2 years of a very good Charlotte economy to find something else. This did not come out of the blue.
