How Do Dollar Stores Make Money?
Dollar stores are multiplying quickly these days. If everything in each of these stores is so cheap, then how do they make money? For at least some of the merchandise, they are really offering a great deal, it's just the packaging is smaller. Some of the products are sold for less due to good wholesale buying. The one buck retailers also have certain niche markets, like party supplies. The big box guys like Walmart and Target are feeling the heat, as are the drug store chains. The $1 retailers want to be the "fill in" shopping destination of choice.
