How Dollar Tree, Dollar General, and TJX are weathering the downturn

Low-price retailers, including Dollar Tree and Dollar General, are adapting strategies to maintain sales amidst predicted consumer spending patterns in 2024 similar to 2023. The company is also focusing on larger store formats, allowing for a broader mix of products, including refrigerated items, health and beauty products, and fresh produce. TJX Companies, parent company of HomeGoods, is betting on brick-and-mortar and has shut down HomeGoods' ecommerce business to concentrate on physical locations, emphasizing that ecommerce remains a small percentage of their overall business.The team at the Ogilvy published a report for brands to know what to expect in 2024 when it comes to the creator economy space. A few findings include:  

  • Dollar Tree added 4.3 million new customers in 12 months (Sept 2023)
  • Most of our new customers over the past year have household incomes over $125,000
  • To continue to draw in new customers across income brackets, Dollar Tree is expanding its multi price assortment (i.e., products with price points beyond $1.25)
  • Dollar General, however, is reducing the number of SKUs, which it said helps lower costs, enabling the retailer to pass those savings to the customer
