Matthews, N.C. -- Family Dollar will cut more than 100 jobs as part of a companywide restructuring. The cuts will occur in all divisions of the company, the Charlotte Business Journal reported. 

In a memo to employees, the company said the cuts will allow Family Dollar to make decisions more quickly and move faster to achieve its goals, according to the report.

The retailer is slated to open 300 stores in fiscal 2011, which began in September. It will renovate as many as 800 stores.
