In the last year in the past year, the majority of new customers to Dollar Tree had an annual household earning at minimum $85,000, Mike Witynski, the chain’s chief executive, revealed on an interview with analysts. In its competitor Dollar General, there was also a rise in shoppers with higher incomes as Todd Vasos, its CEO explained as a move by more customers in the quest to “seek value.”

Dollar General’s revenues grew by 9.9% in the second quarter in comparison to the same time in the year before, which was $9.4 billion. Its profit increased by 6 percent. Dollar Tree’s revenue jumped about 7% in the second quarter, reaching $6.8 billion, while its profit increased by 27 percent.

The signs of the growing pressures on consumers were evident in the retail results. People were coming to stores more frequently but spending less, Vasos of Dollar General stated, describing shopping choices as being “closer to need” than more essential and discretionary purchases. In the case of Dollar Tree, there has been an “huge shift from cash into credit, which tells us the customer is pressured,” Witynski explained.

Dollar Tree which is up by 17% since start of the year, and is among the most profitable stocks in the consumer discretionary segment within the S&P 500, reported a 6.7 percent increase in sales to $6.77 billion, up from $6.34 billion during the same time frame last year. For Dollar General, sales rose by 9% to $9.4 billion, up from $8.7 billion during the second quarter last year. The company explained was the result of its performance improving in new and established stores as well as customers making more purchases per visit.

Dollar Tree said profit increased 27% to $359.9 million, up from $282.4 million last year. Dollar General’s profits grew 6.4 percent to $678 million, up from the year prior, which was $637 million.
