Dollar Tree can’t afford to sell eggs anymore

(CNN) – Eggs have recently become too expensive for many of us. Now, even Dollar Tree can’t afford to sell them anymore.
The discount chain sells most products for $1.25 and a small selection of items for three or five bucks.
The company used to sell cartons of eight or six eggs for $1.25.
Short supply and high production costs are partly to blame for the sky-high egg prices, but producers are also using those factors to justify maximizing their profits.
Most retailers have raised egg prices on customers to adjust for higher costs.
However, Dollar Tree doesn’t have as much flexibility to do that. The company said it will bring back eggs when costs come down.
