99 Cent Hut is more than just a dollar store.
They carry a lot of name brand items (not just the off brand stuff) and still somehow manage to sell it for a dollar. I'm not exactly sure how they can sell name brand home supplies like cleaning products, dishwashing liquid, toothpaste, lotions (Avon?!), deoderants, gift bags that look better than Hallmark, and even GAP tees (yes, they did have them, and I hurridly picked up a few; the back tag was sliced off, but if you own GAP stuff, you know what the tag and quality look like).
Service is good, they help you find things, instead to just telling you to look. The product turnover is high though, so if you see something you like, pick it up then!
I love the candle selection and the gift bags, ribbon, wrapping paper deals.
