Macon Brock: Reception and Book Signing
Feb 9, 2017
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
You're invited to help us celebrate the release of Macon Brock's book, One Buck at a Time, the inside story of how Dollar Tree changed American retail forever.
Brock will be available to sign copies at this reception, and he and co-author Earl Swift will speak on the project at a Kaufman Theater presentation.
One Buck at a Time traces the company's journey from a humble five-and-dime in Norfolk to one of the fastest-growing businesses in America—one that today operates more than 14,000 stores, provides jobs for 165,000 people, and is climbing the Fortune 500.
The book will be released Feb. 7, and you can order it online.
Brock, a former Marine Corps captain and Naval Intelligence officer, cofounded Dollar Tree in 1986. He served as CEO from 1993 to 2003 and continues today as chairman of the board of directors. He is a long-time generous contributor to this Museum.
Earl Swift is a residential fellow of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities at the University of Virginia and the author of five previous books.Import to Calendar Share
