    I worked (briefly) at a dollar store in the 90’s …also, years before that, sold at a flea market, where one of my long tables had a sign that said everything on it was a dollar….


    Believe me, people, all sorts of people, ask that question…. a l l … d a y … l o n g.


    When it was my own stuff, rather than me representing a company….

    I liked to answer “$2.50”


    Inevitably, the questioner would say “Then why does the sign say $1?”
    To which I would answer “Beats me.”

    They had a guy at the dollar tree here that was drunk and fell asleep on the wheel of a truck which then backed over him. They had a cross on the median strip with flowers for ten years.

    We had a pile of scarves – scarves! – piled on a table with a $2.00, and a woman asked me if that was the size.

    Most dollar stores I know now charge up to $3.00 for stuff. Still a good deal on a lot of stuff, though

    Same here in Sumter County, FL… They should change the sign to “Ten Dollar Store.”

    They should call it the Easily Breakable Crap Store.

    Thank you. I couldn’t keep it straight which did what.

    What no tax on it? It would make it a $1.09 total.

    It is a fact that not all dollar stores are truly only charging a dollar or less.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    In BC with taxes it would be $1.12. In the Maritimes, $1.15. Alberta doesn’t have provincial tax, so it would only be $1.05.
    .
    Don’t know about the rest – just those.
