Dollar Twenty Five Tree

Dollar Tree hikes prices 25%. Most items will cost $1.25

Quote:
Dollar Tree will soon be $1.25 tree.

The company — one of America's last remaining true dollar stores — said Tuesday it will raise prices from $1 to $1.25 on the majority of its products by the first quarter of 2022. The change is a sign of the pressures low-cost retailers face holding down prices during a period of rising inflation.

Dollar Tree (DLTR) said in a quarterly earnings release Tuesday that its decision to raise prices to $1.25 permanently, however, was "not a reaction to short-term or transitory market conditions."

Selling stuff strictly for $1 hampered Dollar Tree, the company said, and forced it stop selling some "customer favorites." Raising prices will give Dollar Tree more flexibility to reintroduce those items, expand its selection and bring new products and sizes to its stores.
First they came for Two Buck Chuck, then they came for Dollar Tree.

I'm old enough to remember the forerunners of the Dollar Stores. They were called Five and Dimes (or Five and Ten-Cent Stores), although in fairness they had plenty of items that cost more than that.

There used to be a restaurant around here that made a big deal about nothing on the menu over $5. Except the drinks from the bar of course. That place was always packed. But of course the servings got smaller and the drink prices got higher. Eventually they had to give in, and business went downhill.

My parents always called Woolworth's the "Five and Dime." My father was always going there to get away from my mother and us kids. "I'm goin' down to the Five and Dime to get some socks." He'd be gone 2-3 hours. They were on Main Street, and when the first mall came to the city (1969) business plummeted, but they hung on another 20 years on Main Street.

I'm not as old as some here, but I can remember when you could still get a plain hamburger for 15 cents. And a Coke for a dime. That was better than the school lunch. I puked school lunch more than once. I remember in elementary school seeing crates of meat sitting in the sun on the loading dock behind the cafeteria.

And get off my lawn you goddamn kids!

There was a Five and Dime a couple of blocks down from my grandmother's house in Philadelphia. A couple of block the other way now is that Four Seasons Landscaping place. Dollar Store prices go up as the world seems to get smaller.

I guess now I'll have to pay $1.25 for my Suave shampoo and conditioner (least ways while I still got hair).

My mom is dreadfully old, and seems even older because of that quirk some Southerners have of using the vocabulary of their own parents' or grandparents' generation. She says "five and dime" sometimes, and has slipped up and called the refrigerator an "icebox". She's not even 80 but sometimes talks like a 120 year old.

Her own father was even worse, he was born in 1915 and talked like the earliest editions of the Hardy Boys books. He's the only person I ever met who said "jalopy". And he called dragonflies "mosquito hawks".

Sounds like false advertising. Clearly what's needed is yet smaller quantities of candy, detergent and shampoo etc, that they can still sell for $1.00 and retain their integrity.

Since they opened here, I've been shopping at Daiso rather than dollar stores. Their base price is $1.50 to account for the currency difference (they're 100¥ in Japan). Since their quality is hugely superior to dollar store stuff, I have no problems paying the extra.

I remember the 5 & 10¢ stores from my childhood, and there's still a Ben Franklin a couple suburbs up 405 from here.

Curiously, this was also the colloquial name for our really cheap, really awful boxed wine. To "chuck" in Oz can mean to spew up.

I haven't heard it suggested yet that they call it the Dollar Quarter Store. They would even save on the signage.

Maybe Dollar Two Bits would be even better.

Last I heard of them, Ben Franklin had become a hobby store. Don't know if they're still around. Wait, why not Google....
....Yup, still around.

"Dollar Two Bits" can't be used, it's just screaming for spoonerism into "Dollar Boo Tits". Which would be an interesting store in itself, but not quite the same thing as this.

If I were they (and I am not they) I'd change the name to "Dollar Plus": they could then claim to be accurately announcing the increased pricing and also suggesting the store is somehow enhanced in quality.

Around here, those hobby stores became A C Moore then closed. My neighborhood Dollar Tree already has 1.25 for most things. I hope some of the discontinued things really do come back.

The great thing about Two Buck Chuck was that it was served everywhere. My first taste was at a private event at a coastal estate.

Interesting thread but in New York we called them "five-and-ten-cent-stores." In my neighborhood we had three: Woolworth's, Kresge's and Lamston's. In Googling info about them I found some local blogs -- from the New York Metropolitan Area -- stating that Kresge's and Lamston's were preferred to Woolworth's. That rings true with me. I remember the local Woolworth's as still having wood floors (in the 1960s) and seeming cluttered. My grandmother liked it, she used to take me there. When I was on my own I preferred Kresge's and then Lamston's.

I guess I presumed both chains -- Kresge's and Lamston's -- were gone along with Woolworth's but I learned, while Lamston's apparently disappeared in 1977, that same year Kresge's began to transition to Kmart. Which worked out for a while.
Quote:
Kmart is shuttering its last-remaining store in Michigan, the state where the once-proud retail chain launched in 1899. It's one of series of store closings that will leave the company with only six locations in the continental United States still in business by year's end. CNN Business
Woolworth's became Footlocker.

Was going to mention them, knew I'd be ninja'd.
Family stated in many of them back when.

And don't get me started on those greedy bastards over at Motel 8.


Eta... I thought of it because there's a 6 about a quarter mile away even here in sleepy Oregon, I pass it all the time.
Rooms start at $56... greedy bastards.
