Dollar Tree Stores : Dollar Tree Reports Second-Quarter Sales Of $883.6 Million

08/03/2006 | 09:13am US/Eastern

Dollar Tree Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR), the nation's largest $1.00 discount variety store chain, reported total sales for its fiscal second quarter of 2006 were $883.6 million, a 14.9% increase compared to $769.0 million in last year's fiscal second quarter. These sales results were above the range of the Company's most recent guidance of $855 to $875 million. Comparable-store sales for the quarter increased 4.2 %.

"Sales growth was consistent throughout the quarter," President and CEO Bob Sasser said. "The installation of expanded payment type acceptance and the continued expansion of consumer products in our assortment, especially in the larger stores, are key initiatives that contributed to a higher average sale per customer and increased year over year customer traffic."
