The low-price retailer is heating up.

Dollar General made an all-cash bid of nearly $10 billion for Family Dollar, topping a deal Dollar Tree made last month.

Dollar General is bidding $78.50 per Family Dollar share, to total $9.7 billion.

Dollar General said the deal is superior to the $74.50 per share cash and stock offer Dollar Tree made last month. That deal has been valued at $8.5 billion.

Efforts to reach Family Dollar for comment were not immediately successful.
