Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 24, 2011 after market closing, Dollar Tree, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a variable maturity accelerated share repurchase agreement (the “ASR Agreement”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association (“JPMorgan”) to repurchase $200 million (the “Repurchase Price”) of the Company’s common shares.  This accelerated share repurchase program is part of the execution of a repurchase program authorized by the Company’s board of directors to repurchase up to $500 million of common shares that was approved in June 2010.
Pursuant to the terms of the ASR Agreement, the Company paid the Repurchase Price to JPMorgan on August 25, 2011, and JPMorgan made an initial delivery to the Company of 2,346,385 shares of the Company’s common shares (equivalent to approximately 80% of the number of the Company’s common shares that could be purchased with an amount of cash equal to the Repurchase Price based on the closing price of the Company’s common shares on August 24, 2011).
The total number of the Company’s common shares that will generally be repurchased under the ASR Agreement will be based on the volume-weighted average share price of the Company’s common shares during a calculation period specified in the ASR Agreement, subject to a minimum and a maximum number of shares and subject to adjustment in accordance with the terms of the ASR Agreement.  This calculation period is expected to end later this year.  At the end of this calculation period, the Company may receive an additional number of its common shares.  All common shares repurchased under the accelerated share repurchase program will be retired.
The ASR Agreement is subject to terms customary for similar agreements, including terms providing for the effect of extraordinary corporate transactions and setting forth the circumstances under which the ASR Agreement may be terminated early.

The Company issued a press release concerning the accelerated share repurchase program on August 25, 2011.  The contents of such press release (attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1) are hereby incorporated by reference and furnished under this Item 7.01.

A WARNING ABOUT FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS: The press release incorporated into this report contains "forward looking statements" as that term is used in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward looking statements address future events, developments or results and typically use words such as believe, will, anticipate, expect, intend, plan, forecast, or estimate. For example, our forward looking statements include statements regarding our intentions to repurchase common shares, the method and timing as well as the number of shares repurchased, related expenditures, the benefits of such transactions, and our ability to generate free cash flow. A further list and description of these risks, uncertainties and other matters can be found in the Company's annual report and other reports filed from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission. For a discussion of the risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could affect our future events, developments or results, you should carefully review the "Risk Factors," "Business," and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed March 17, 2011 and our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed August 18, 2011. In light of these risks and uncertainties, the future events, developments or results described by our forward looking statements in this



document could turn out to be materially and adversely different from those we discuss or imply. Dollar Tree cautions that the foregoing list of important factors may not be complete, and we are not obligated to release publicly any revisions to any forward looking statements contained in this press release to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this report and you should not expect us to do so.
