Dollar Tree is halting the sales of eggs in its stores due to the rising price of everyday food caused by ongoing inflation, according to Reuters. The discount retailer is a popular destination for budget-conscious shoppers in the US and Canada. However, the firm anticipates restocking its egg inventory in all their stores later this year. The firm had announced in 2021 that it would increase its prices from $1 to $1.25 as it planned to reintroduce some products that were discontinued because of the $1 restrictions. Egg prices hit a record high in January due to an outbreak of bird flu but fell 6.7% last month. Despite this decrease, the price of eggs is currently 55.4% higher than a year ago. The Hill has contacted Dollar Tree for comment.
