CHESAPEAKE, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR) will host its 2023 Investor Conference in Norfolk, Va., today to discuss the Company’s strategy and financial outlook.
The event will feature presentations by Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Rick Dreiling, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Davis, and members of the Company’s executive management team. The presentations will provide an in-depth overview of the Company and its business segments, including growth strategies, financial objectives, multi-year outlook, and expectations of future cash available for capital allocation.
The executive team will share the Company’s strategy and execution plans for:

“Dollar Tree is on an exciting path of accelerating sales and profit. We have compelling plans in place to deliver expanded value assortment across multiple price points, enhance store standards for our customers, and add new technology and capabilities to accelerate progress with our supply chain and people development,” said Dreiling. “As we pursue these initiatives, we are confident in our ability to achieve mid-single-digit comparable-store sales growth, gain market share, and expand our footprint. Achieving these results should drive substantial operating profit improvement across both banners, deliver EPS of $10 or more in fiscal year 2026, and produce significant available cash for shareholders.
