We found this revealing interview with the (relatively) new President and COO of Family Dollar Stores (#302 in Fortune 500).
Family Dollar Stores is growing. They have plans to open 450 to 500 stores in 2012.

- “There will also be a significant increase in our global sourcing”
- “We must continue to find ways to remain relevant to our customer and drive trips to the store”
- “I’m a huge sports fan and love to ride bikes. Last August, I rode the 200-mile Pan-Mass Challenge and raised $33,000 for cancer research. I plan to do it again this year”
