Share Article

Recent independent survey, backed up by Consumer Reports' secret shoppers, shows why Dollar Stores are thriving even in a down economy.

For the last 20 years, Dollar Store Services has been opening up the hottest retail concept for independent entrepreneurs.

Consumers are saving big on dollar store merchandise and grocery chains are feeling the heat. This is great news for the large corporate dollar store chains but even better news for the independent entrepreneur looking to take advantage of the skyrocketing opportunity.

Gone are the days where the big corporate chains like Dollar Tree, Dollar General and 99 Cents only stores cornered the market on this rock star business concept. In fact since 1992 Dollar Store Services the largest developer of independent dollar stores in North America has been opening dollar stores at a steady pace of over 100 new independent dollar stores every year.

Over the last two decades Dollar Store Services has gone all out to develop competitive independent dollar stores that are working hard to keep value conscious customers coming back. This has fueled Dollar Store Services’ consistent growth.

Today many entrepreneurs are seeking the “everything included” package price dollar store businesses developed by Dollar Store Services. These are everyday people who are now able to enter the market place and compete for the shopping dollars of their local community grocers for a price tag less than a new car. These independent stores often perform on a par with the large big box outfits which for the owners is well worth the small investment. Hundreds of video testimonials of these owners can be seen on Dollar Store Services’ website.

According to a recent Supermarket News survey conducted in June of 2012, dollar stores such as those Dollar Store Services develops for its store owners sit in prime position to provide great value for everyday items such as cleaning products, bathroom and kitchen cleaners, personal grooming items like soap, hair products and many other personal items. The survey quotes one respondent saying that "Dollar stores are capturing paper products and cleaning products away from supermarkets, especially in small markets." Dry food products, Snacks, Balloons, toys, holiday decorations, reading glasses and other popular items are also a factor in the popularity of dollar stores.

Consumer Reports backed up the survey in a July, 2012 article with a secret shopper and shopping expert survey they performed. Here is what shoppers said:

“Dollar stores are convenient and fun.” Shopping in dollar stores is like being on a treasure hunt—they carry a wide and ever-changing stock of goodies. Many of today’s dollar stores are well organized and designed to get you in and out fast.

“They’ll save you a bundle.” Consumer Reports compared prices on 38 everyday products and found that dollar stores had the lowest prices on many items.

“You’ll really save if you buy dollar-store brands.” Store brands always save you big, but no retailers beat dollar stores when it comes to these budget brands, according to the latest price scan.

“America is going dollar-store crazy.” 1,500 women were surveyed to see what they think of dollar stores, and 76 percent said they’d checked out a dollar store in the past year.
