Dollar Tree has withdrawn eggs from sale in its stores after the price of the grocery staple skyrocketed. Once costing as little as $2, the average price for a dozen eggs has jumped to $4.21 taking it well outside Dollar Tree's ideal $1.25 price point. A spokesperson officially confirmed that the dollar store chain would no longer be selling eggs.

Although in 2021, the chain announced it would raise its prices by $.25, with the ongoing cost of living crisis even that higher price is now unsustainable for many items. Some of Dollar Tree's products even retail at $3 and $4.
