Inflation Is Coming Even For Dollar Stores
Both throughout and before the pandemic, stores like Dollar General and Dollar Tree had been a way for buyers to fight inflation and obtain similar goods to what they buy at a supermarket at a lower cost — a situation that could soon change as many dollar stores (and discount stores like Dollar General) feel the brunt of rising prices. Earlier today, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a 7.9% inflation rise for the month of February. Household goods and grocery prices saw some of the highest spikes in prices at a respective 15.3% and 11.5%, according to even more broken-down numbers from the data research company Numerator.
