Dollar Stores Appealing To More Holiday Shoppers

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.

    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.
