Dollar General has a grocery concept, and now Dollar Tree has a store with a pharmacy. Dollar Tree recently contracted with an independent pharmacy based in Boca Raton, FL, to add a location inside a Deals stores in West Park, FL. (Deals is a Dollar Tree variety store concept.)
Although there are people who have doubts that consumers will trust a dollar store for their prescription drug needs, the concept may very well succeed if it competes well in the areas of price and convenience. These two factors have been driving sales up at dollar stores for some time now as they successfully compete with Walmart and traditional supermarkets.
