Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR), the nation's leading operator of discount variety stores selling everything for $1 or less, today announced that after market close on November 21, 2011, it entered into an agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, to repurchase $300 million of its common shares under a variable maturity accelerated share repurchase program. Dollar Tree will acquire these common shares under the $1.5 billion share repurchase program announced on October 7, 2011.

The specific number of shares to be repurchased will generally be based on the volume-weighted average share price of the Company's common shares during the calculation period of the accelerated share repurchase program, subject to collar provisions that establish the minimum and maximum number of shares to be repurchased under the program. All common shares repurchased under the accelerated share repurchase program will be retired.

"Our share repurchase program continues to represent an important part of our capital allocation strategy and an efficient and flexible way of returning value to shareholders," said President and CEO Bob Sasser. "As evidenced by the recently-announced results for the third quarter of 2011, Dollar Tree's sales, operating margin and earnings continue to grow. We are confident in the Company's ability to generate substantial free cash flow for the foreseeable future."

Dollar Tree operated 4,335 stores in 48 states and 5 Canadian Provinces as of October 29, 2011.
