After becoming the largest shareholder of Family Dollar in June 2014, activist investor Carl Icahn demanded the company be put up for sale and two bids were subsequently received: one for $8.5 billion from Dollar Tree, Inc., and another for $9.1 billion from competitor Dollar General Corporation. Family Dollar rejected the latter claiming antitrust issues, and was acquired by Dollar Tree the following year.

Family Dollar provides quality, high-value assortment necessities from leading manufacturers and competitively priced national brands at deeply discounted prices. This has encouraged company growth during periods of economic downturn as the demand for discount retail increases.
