Family Dollar said it has promoted Jeffrey Thomas to the role of SVP-merchandise operations, replacing Scott Zucker, who left the company last month.

Thomas will report to Jason Reiser, EVP and chief merchandising officer. “For more than 54 years, our merchandise operations team has focused on providing the items our customers want and need at great everyday prices,” Reiser said. “Jeff’s supply chain, logistics and replenishment experience along with his proven leadership skills will ensure that we continue to bring value and convenience to customers at each of our more than 8,100 stores across the country.”

Thomas joined Family Dollar in 2003 as a director of vendor performance with responsibility for item data integrity and vendor relationships. Between 2005 and 2013, he assumed greater roles with increased responsibilities, and in 2013 was named VP, merchant services.
