Family Dollar to slash prices, close 370 stores nationwide

Family Dollar Stores Inc. said it will close 370 under-performing stores later this year and slash prices on 1,000 products after its profit for the second quarter plunged more than 30 percent.
The North Carolina-based discount retail chain, which has seven stores in Erie and Crawford counties, also said it would curb store openings in the next fiscal years to 350 to 400. The company planned to launch 525 new stores this year.
Family Dollar has 8,100 stores across the country.
So far, no list of the targeted stores has been released.
