Dollar General Makes $9.7-Billion Counter Bid For Family Dollar Stores

August 19, 2014

 

(Undated)  --  It looks like there's a bidding war going on over Family Dollar Stores.  Dollar General had made a counter bid of close to ten-billion dollars to buy Family Dollar.  That's more than Dollar Tree's eight-point-five-billion dollar bid made in late July.  Dollar General shares were up about nine-percent in pre-market trading this morning on news about the company's counteroffer.  Dollar General has stores located in Canton, Cuba and Lewistown.
