Discount Domination: Dollar Stores are Thriving in America – Visual Capitalist

– in Visual  Capitalist

The retail landscape is in a constant state of flux.

E-commerce is indisputably disrupting almost every imaginable aspect of retail, creating what has been coined as the “retail apocalypse”. As a result, certain segments of the market have had well publicized meltdowns – electronics and apparel, in particular – and the U.S. now has far more retail floor space available than any other nation.

That said, there is one type of store that’s thriving in this unpredictable landscape – dollar stores.

Today, we examine data from the Institute of Local Self-Reliance, which puts the scale of the United States’ dollar store boom into perspective.

    Americans don’t have money to spend because their economy is phony and being propped up through exploitation of the third world.

    amazon is the main culprit……for dollar store expansion I have some cash invested in the dollar stores so I am good to go
    everything goes in cycles I expect a resurgence in stores, but smaller.
