Demonstrations In Ferguson Raise Critical Questions - Yahoo News

Levine said on Thursday that the letter "contained blatant mischaracterizations and did nothing to address the antitrust issues in Dollar General's proposal." Dollar General, the largest U.S. dollar store operator, alleged that it had been led astray by Levine in talks on a potential buyout, notably during a meeting on June 19. In response, Family Dollar said representatives of Dollar General "stated that they were not interested in pursuing a strategic transaction at that time." Dollar General had said in its offer that it was prepared to divest up to 700 retail stores to get regulatory approval for the deal, the same percentage that Dollar Tree had proposed. Dollar Tree made an $8.5 billion cash-and-stock offer for Family Dollar on July 28, to fend off growing competition from Wal-Mart Stores Inc and Dollar General.
