Emergency exits that are blocked (e.g., by boxes, stored items) or locked is a serious safety violation and can result in very costly fines and penalties. Case in point: Dollar Tree got slapped with a $129,000 fine by OSHA for having locked its emergency doors at a Texas store during working hours. Dollar Tree has also been hit with six figure citations for blocking emergency exits with boxes and other supplies.
