Dollar Tree stores typically get new shipments once a week and restock shelves daily, as needed. Shipment days, times, and frequency vary by location based on each store’s sales volume. For more details, see below.
When Does Dollar Tree Get New Shipments? When Does Dollar Tree Restock?
Dollar Tree stores typically get one large shipment each week, and store associates often restock shelves daily. We contacted Dollar Tree’s corporate customer service department and store locations in Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Tennessee to find out about Dollar Tree’s shipment and restocking schedule. Store associates in Michigan and New Jersey said new shipments usually arrive on Fridays, but this can vary.
Dollar Tree uses an automated allocation system that arranges shipments based on each store’s sales volume, corporate customer service representatives said. Shipment days, times, and frequency vary based on the system’s calculations.
Inventory at Dollar Tree stores changes frequently. We were unable to confirm a particular stocking schedule for seasonal items like flip-flops and holiday gift wrap, but seasonal merchandise typically arrives a few weeks ahead of anticipated demand. To find out if a specific item is in stock or will be restocked soon, you’ll need to contact your local store. Dollar Tree’s corporate customer service department does not have access to store inventory information.
Keep in mind, the New Arrivals section on Dollar Tree’s website does not necessarily reflect what’s available in stores. You can, however, shop online. Minimum purchase amounts (e.g., one case) for online orders may apply. Shipping is free when items are sent to a Dollar Tree store for pick-up.
