Egg-xit Strategy: Dollar Tree Stores pull eggs, for now


Share post:

CHICAGO, IL – Dollar Tree Stores Inc. has pulled eggs from their shelves across Illinois and nationwide, citing inability to make a profit selling eggs at current price levels and short staffing issues.

The company’s spokesperson confirmed to Reuters that they do not anticipate bringing eggs back into Dollar Tree stores until the fall. However, Family Dollar stores, also owned by Dollar Tree Inc., will continue to sell eggs.

This move has disappointed some customers who frequently purchase eggs at the popular dollar store chain.

Dollar Tree’s decision to pull eggs from its shelves also highlights the ongoing issue of short staffing, which the company refers to as “a lean staffing model.” The situation has been further complicated since the pandemic, which has made it difficult for retailers to hire and retain employees.

Despite the challenges, Dollar Tree’s decision to remove eggs from its shelves has garnered mixed reactions from customers. While some have expressed disappointment, others have applauded the move, stating that the company’s commitment to profitability is a smart business decision.

Regardless of the opinions, Dollar Tree’s decision has left many wondering how it will impact access to affordable food options for low-income families who rely on dollar stores for groceries.
