Dollar Tree's cost jump from US$1 to US$1.25

Dollar Tree (DLTR) is an American low-cost budget variety store company that recently announced it would increase the pricing on most of its items from US$1 to US$1.25 by the first quarter of 2022.

"Raising pricing would allow Dollar Tree to relaunch "consumer favourites," increase its range, and offer new goods and sizes to its locations," said the Dollar Tree store.
