Five Below Looks To Triple Its Store Count to 3,500

Five Below Philadelphia

Discount retailer Five Below is aggressively ratcheting up its growth plans, looking to triple its store count to 3,500 by the end of 2030 and double its sales by 2025 as it creates a shopping experience that caters to younger customers.

The Philadelphia-based chain, which now has 1,190 stores in 40 states, unveiled its “Triple-Double” strategy Wednesday at the company’s first investor day event. The retailer said it aims to open about 1,000 more stores by the end of fiscal 2025 alone. In addition, the company reported its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings and gave Wall Street analysts a tour of its newest store prototype, the latest iteration of what has typically involved increasing the square footage at a typical brick-and-mortar site.

Five Below targets tweens, generally considered those 9 to 12 years old, and teens with an array of toys, candy, tech accessories and gadgets, bedroom decor, sports items and other merchandise that they can play with or “experience,” priced from $1 to $5. The idea is to offer young shoppers a venue where they can “treasure hunt” and spend their allowances, CEO Joel Anderson said. That’s something online shopping can’t provide.
