400 stores will be closing in 2019, this just got communicated. This will result in 1000+ people losing jobs - it'll be bad. I am sure more people will be laid off as they will rebrand 200 stores to Dollar Tree - they operate with less staff over there.
This is bad and there were closures in 2018 as Family Dollar closed over 100 stores last year.
I am sure execs will not be hurt by this, the little guy always gets hurt.
Good luck all!
