Ultra-cheap discounter Dollar Tree has turned off the in-store music in all of its stores, citing cost issues. On the company’s Facebook page, shoppers keep complaining that the company is being too cheap (many don’t seem to know about licensing fees for music), but Dollar Tree’s official response is that it freed up expenses to keep prices low.
keeping our expenses as low as possible is ALWAYS a focus at Dollar Tree. By doing so, we can continue to offer amazing values to our customers. The decision to remove store music was not an easy one, but the savings from that allow us to expand the variety of fantastic items we currently offer our customers. At Dollar Tree it’s about providing customers all the things they want and need every day and all for $1.
