Family Dollar Rejects Dollar General Bid
Family Dollar has rejected a nearly $10-billion buyout bid from Dollar General.
Family Dollar says it's sticking with an agreement to merge with Dollar Tree for less money.
Family Dollar released a statment saying, "it was rejected "on the basis of antitrust regulatory considerations."
All three of the chains specialize in low-cost consumers goods.
Dollar General calls itself the largest discount retailer in the U.S., with more than 11,000 stores in 40 states.
