LOS ANGELES (KNX 1070) — From toys to wrapping paper and wreaths, discount stores are appealing to more holiday shoppers on a budget.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks states that dollar stores are reporting increased sales of more than four percent as compared to a few months ago.

“For a bargain… you can get for the kitchen – that type of thing, utensils, that type of stuff — why pay more,” said one shopper at the 99¢ Only store in Glendale.

In addition, family dollar stores this year have boosted the number of $5 and $10 selections to bring shoppers more low-cost options, including electronics and wrapping paper.

      Your crazy…it’s obvious you haven’t shopped in a 99 cent store. There are people from all walks of life, rich and poor, shopping for bargains. There are many useful things that can be purchased at one of these stores..

    Dollar Tree rocks! I saved a ton this year by shopping there for paper, bows, cookie tins and stocking stuffers. I’m neither illegal or poor.

    A bag of bean = $1, a bag of burrito wrap =$1. They spend $2 to make 10 burritos and treat their slump and overcrowded neighborhood, That how they got their praise on the good food. Amen.
