After seeing this thread
about how Wal-Mart stores are noticing a decrease in their
consumers, I have noticed a drastic increase in the amount of shoppers in 99 Cent Only stores. Throughout the day, there are three different ones I
might go to, depending on my location and what best fits my schedule. I've been going for a long time now, and it is usually pretty busy, but in the
past few months, I've noticed an incredible increase in people shopping. In one store with 8 different lanes opened and it only being 2pm, it still
took 10 minutes to get through -- that's just how packed it was. I decided to try and go during 5:30pm to see what it was like, and the lines in all 8
different lanes were, at a minimum, 20 persons long.
With the global crisis the way it is, I was wondering if any of you have noticed these experiences at your own 99 Cent Only store, Dollar Tree, Big
Lots, Fred's, cheap store, etc.
