Dollar Tree was formed in 1953, by Dominique Alex, who came up with the idea of selling goods for just a dollar. The company was initially given the name of Ben Franklin and then later K&K 5&10, until it was given the name Dollar tree.

In 1991, the company started focusing on growing $1 stores and sold K&K to KB Toys. It became public in 1995, and launched its first IPO in the same year, thus becoming part of NASDAQ 100 index. The following year, Dollar Tree acquired another chain of stores based in Chicago, called Dollar Bill$.

After this the company acquired a few other firms, it built various distribution centers in Portland, Stockton, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. By 2008, the company had become huge enough for it to obtain a place among the Fortune 500 companies. In 2012, the company expanded its operation in Canada, by acquiring 86 stores of “Dollar Giant,” one of the biggest chains in Canada.
