Say WHAT? Dollar Tree will once again offer select items for $1, even though prices went up to $1.25 a couple years ago. Here's what you need to know!
Dollar Tree Prices…Going Back Down?
In 2022, Dollar Tree raised their prices from $1 to $1.25 on hundreds of items across ALL Dollar Tree stores nationwide. They also added higher priced items as part of their Dollar Tree Plus expansion. However, in a recent conference, the CMO stated that Dollar Tree will soon have about 300 to 400 products return to their original $1 price points in an effort to remain competitive.
Dollar Tree sells over 8,000 products, so this price decrease won't affect a ton of items. However, it may be helpful for shoppers who don't want to pay more than what other retailers currently offer.
The price decreases will be clearly labeled on the shelves or packaging, with the possibility of more items being added in the future. Here's what the CEO of Dollar Tree said in an investors conference –
“It’s pretty hard to have a banner like (Dollar Tree), and you have an item that everybody else has at $1, and you’re at a buck and a quarter.”
Dollar Tree has always offered a few things that are still $1 or less – like select handmade greeting cards, canned vegetables (usually TWO for $1), and packets of seeds which (FOUR for $1). The company also plans to add frozen foods, bread, and other merchandise for $3, $4, and $5 this year.
We're not sure when these newly lowered $1 items will hit the shelves, but we'll be sure to keep our eyes peeled!

Dollar Tree Plus – What is it??
Dollar Tree recently launched a brand NEW section at select stores called “Dollar Tree Plus” that offers oodles of $3 and $5 items ~ sort of like a mix between Five Below and Dollar Tree!
This new section has been tested in select markets since 2019 and is now available in over 500 Dollar Tree stores. Dollar Tree plans to have at least 5,000 Plus stores are expected by the end of fiscal 2024.
They're also planning to add 400 Combo Stores (Family Dollar/Dollar Tree stores) in 2022, with the potential of up to 3,000 over the next several years.
Dollar Tree Plus Locations
Wondering if there is a Dollar Tree Plus near you? While there's not really a super easy way to find out exactly which stores have this new section, you may be able to use the Dollar Tree store locator online and see if your store has this red PLUS! banner located next to it (like pictured below).
Note that the store that my friend Mary visited did NOT have the PLUS! banner located next to it since it just rolled out recently, so be sure to call your local store and ask to see if it rolled out recently.
Wondering what the shelves look like at these new DT Plus stores? My friend Mary ventured over to her local store in Texas after hearing that the items had just hit the shelves. Check out what she found below!
🚨🚨Note that NOT all of the items we found are great deals – they're just an idea of some of the items available. However, you can still use coupons on these name-brand items if you have them to save more.
