Family Dollar to shake up textiles assortment
Clint Engel -- Furniture Today, June 13, 2003
New York — Family Dollar will reposition its home textiles business this summer, and customers will see a "seismic change" as products from new vendors are brought in and looks will be coordinated across departments, including table linens, shower curtains and comforters, president and coo David Alexander told HTT following the U.S. Bancorp Piper Jaffray consumer conference here this week.
Already, the chain, which used to only carry muslin sheets, has since switched to percale. The quality is similar to product at Kohl's and Linens 'n Things, said Alexander.
"More and more vendors are willing to sell to our channel; they realize it's the fastest growing niche in retail," he added.
