Back on the 17th I mentioned:
I’ve been making use of the dollar store for the ‘nice to haves’ because I can get three bags of snacks, cheap frozen meals, and some flavored seltzer for under $20 there – but I’m not sure how long they can keep those prices.
Well, apparently today they announced that as of Q1 2022 everything will be at least $1.25 and they will possibly include $3 and $5 items as well.
Thus ends the 35 year run of the dollar store concept. Not that this affects me much as I only just discovered the place a couple of months ago – but it is a sign of the times.
