I don’t know how many of you have ever gone to Dollar Tree (in the US, of course). But some of the stuff there really seems to be worth more than a dollar. (With tax in Michigan where I live. But still.)
Just the other day I got a fairly large laundry basket. For a dollar. They also have faux Waterford crystal. Figurines, even food. Campbell’s soup. And it’s not expired. (Despite people warning me to check the date. I do. And it’s still okay.)
How do they do it? And will they have to up it to two dollars? And when?
About 20 years ago, dollar stores often had a multitude of dollar items. But inflation has since put an end to that. Not Dollar Tree though.
Oh, and I have to tell you this funny story. Some time back we were consulting with our tax lawyer. (That’s what he called himself. But he was setting up a trust for us FWIW.) And he said his wife warned him that he was not to get their anniversary gifts there. Because really you could, you know. Now that’s funny.
Again: how do they do it? And will they have to stop some day?
