This is the first time I walked into a dollar store where things are $1.09??? It really makes no sense to me. Also, they have many items that are 4 and 5 dollars. The quality is the exact same as those found in 99 cent stores - same brand products. If you have a choice go to a 99 cent store. Over there, if you buy 10 items, they give you one free - so its like 90 cents per item. Mega Dollar is only good if you want something right away and you happen to be there. There is only 1 employee that works there and shes usually pretty ininterested in talking to any customers.
