The dollar store concept has become a true phenomenon. By buying huge lots of imported, discontinued, overstocked or returned items, dollar stores are able to offer their customers a wide variety of merchandise at greatly reduced prices. Household goods, clothing, toys, paper products and foodstuffs are only a few of the categories in which dollar stores can pass on their savings to consumers.

With more than 15 billion dollars in net sales each year, dollar stores are the fastest growing segment of the retail industry. A recent report shows that 60 million American households visit a dollar store on an average of eleven times each year. (That sounds about right for me, but I think my mother goes eleven times a week.)

Dollar stores do well no matter what the economic climate might be. When things are tight, people want more for their money, of course, but even in good years, everyone wants a bargain. In addition to the usual sources for dollar store merchandise, manufacturers are now beginning to produce products expressly for sale at such outlets.
