Family Dollar stores are owned by Dollar Tree, since the Family Dollar brand was purchased in  2015 sales growth has been slow. So what to do when the going gets tough? Sell alcohol, of course!

Family Dollar announced it will be adding alcoholic beverages to 1000 Family Dollar stores in the coming months, they also plan to expand the freezers and coolers in-store. No word on the exact location of the "test" stores, but it's safe to say if sales show a nice jump, expect to see the number of stores selling adult drinks to go up!
