History

 



Greenbrier International owns and operates the retail chain of Dollar Tree stores with over 5000 stores.As part of that, they source products from China and other Asian locations to provide inexpensive products for their stores.Similar to many other businesses, they have their own house crayon product.The crayon products they import donít use a brand name as with most others.Instead, they are more generic in design and name.

 

The company has roots going back to 1953 in Virginia.K. R. Perry opened a Ben Franklin variety store in downtown Norfolk, Virginia, which he later renamed K&K 5&10 back in 1953. From there Macon Brock, Doug Perry, and K.R. Perry started K&K Toys in Norfolk, Virginia in 1970. This mall concept toy store grew to over 130 stores on the East coast. The K&K 5&10 store continued to exist and served as the foundation for what would become Dollar Tree.Then in 1986, Macon Brock, Doug Perry, and Ray Compton started Only $1.00 with 5 stores, one in Georgia, one in Tennessee, and three in Virginia. The expansion of dollar stores was continued alongside K&K Toys stores, mostly in enclosed malls.†† In 1991 K&K Toys was sold to KB Toys, a Melville Corp., and all assets were applied to the expansion of the dollar stores.The name of the company (Only $1.00) was changed to Dollar Tree Stores in 1993 to address what could be a multi-price-point strategy in the future. Part equity interest was sold to SKM partners, a private equity firm.In 1995 Dollar Tree went public on the NASDAQ exchange in March at $15 a share. Market cap was calculated at $225 million.It was 1997 when Dollar Tree broke ground on its first Distribution Center and its new Store Support Center, both located in Chesapeake, Virginia.They have been growing and expanding ever since.
