On the other hand, the combination with Dollar Tree could ease competitive pressures as the company builds a larger store base to compete with Dollar General (NYSE: DG ) and fend off Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT ) . The combined company will have more than 13,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada, leapfrogging Dollar General as North America's largest discount chain. The additional scale – and operating synergies with Dollar Tree – could help boost Family Dollar's bottom line.
