Dollar Tree has already started rolling out the $1.25 base price at some stores, with nearly 2,000 stores expected to convert to the new prices in December. The rest of the stores will convert in the first quarter of 2022.

With the introduction of the new Dollar Tree Plus store concept, Dollar Tree was already set on breaking their $1-only price point.

 

Dollar Tree had been testing higher prices for months before this announcement.

Although Dollar Tree has kept their prices at $1 while dealing with inflation and other economic pressures, company execs say they’re increasing prices to reduce volatility — so they can keep growing the company with remodels, new Dollar Tree Plus! concept stores, and additional products.

In late September 2021, Dollar Tree started testing higher prices in stores, experimenting with three different price points — $1.00, $1.25, and $1.50 — but it appears they settled on the middle price point. Throughout the test, they found that their customers were open to a slight bump in prices.

 

Don’t worry, you can still coupon at Dollar Tree.

Despite the higher prices, Dollar Tree coupon policy isn’t changing. In-store Dollar Tree coupons aren’t really a thing since their prices are so low, but they’ve long accepted most manufacturer coupons.

You can use coupons worth more than the product itself, but Dollar Tree will just adjust the amount down, so don’t expect any moneymakers.

Yep, you can totally shop online at Dollar Tree, but you can’t use coupons. There’s a limited selection and you have to buy everything in bulk. The good news is, the new prices haven’t taken effect yet online.

While it looks like Dollar Tree Plus! items aren’t available via the website yet, expect the higher-priced items to appear throughout 2022.

 

 

Meanwhile, Dollar Tree Plus! is bringing $3 and $5 items to 600+ stores.

Dollar tree has tested new $3 and $5 products, under the banner of Dollar Tree Plus!, since mid-2019, and apparently they’re happy enough to expand the experiment to a Dollar Tree near you.

Not only will there be 500 Dollar Tree Plus! stores by the end of 2021, but the Dollar Tree Plus! concept is making its way into regular Dollar Tree stores.

As of September 2021, Dollar Tree has 105 “combo” stores, with 400 more coming in 2022, and up to 3,000 in several years.

 

Dollar Tree Plus! products include electronics, beauty products, toys, and crafts.

Dollar Tree Plus! has expanded a number of product categories such as electronics, toys, health & beauty, party supplies, seasonal goods, and more.

When I spoke to one of the Texas Dollar Trees that had Plus! items, they told me they currently had quite a mixture of items in stock, like shirts, hats, ornaments, plants, clocks, headphones, and watches.
