Family Dollar is a third or fourth tier retailer that's only successful until a 21st century retailer like K Mart, Wal Mart or anyone else (is Zayre's still around? - they'd kill FD too) moves into a market.

That's interesting. I live about an hour from Family Dollar's headquarters in a town/area where a similar retailer, Dollar General, is sprouting new stores like weeds.

I don't know about Family Dollar's growth plans, but DG sure seems to be growing just fine.

We have a Wal-Mart SuperCenter here (and a Wal-Mart distribution center FWIW) and the presence of Wal-Mart sure doesn't seem to be having a negative impact on DG.
