Family Dollar Stores has rejected the acquisition proposal made by Dollar General and is moving forward with its merger with Dollar Tree.
Following Dollar Tree's announcement at the end of July that it had bought rival Family Dollar, Dollar General has offered a counter-bid for the discount chain.
Discount variety store chain Dollar Tree has acquired rival discount store chain Family Dollar Stores, becoming the largest discount retailer in North America.
