You Need To Know About This The Next Time You Shop At A Dollar Store
It has been reported by numerous media outlets (including The Tennessean and Forbes) that a popular dollar store has just purchased another popular dollar store for $8.5 BILLION dollars. This means that there's a high possibility that the larger store will adopt the price points that the other store employs: not every thing is a dollar there.
We have a few dollar store locations in Yakima, and many of our listeners shop there because, hello, pretty much everything is a DOLLAR. I shop there on the regular because of my limited monthly funds (you parents and large families know what I'm talking about--eek!), so I got scared when I heard this news.
The latest story coming out of Bloomberg News today is that some investors are suing to prevent the takeover!
Ooh wee, scandalous!
Here is a photo showing you a bunch of stuff that I found in my house that I have purchased from a local dollar store. (Please note, I did NOT buy the Keurig coffee maker or the microwave or the child at the dollar store.)
Will this mean that my canned goods and off-brand pork rinds will now cost more than a dollar? And who knew that dollar stores had BILLIONS to spend on anything? Do all of our $1 dollars add up to be THAT much? All of these questions!
I suppose that it's possible, seeing as how I will go in to a dollar store for just one or two items and then come out having spent $30 on some stuff I didn't realize I truly needed around the house! Hello, this happens to me all the time at Tar-zhay and WallyMart!
I did a quick inventory of all the things in my house that I bought for literally a dollar at the local dollar store on Nob Hill Blvd, and all I'm saying is that I don't want my bathtub cleaner, bubble bath, dishes, grilling tools, silver forks (and don't forget the silver spoons), plus the $1 microwave pasta, the soap bars, candles, assorted picture frames, Christmas ornaments, Valentine's candy, and St. Patrick's Day gift boxes to EVER cost me more than a dollar, I don't care WHO buys WHAT company! This mama's on a tight budget and I need my stuff very affordable, mkay!!
