A Hot Market Opportunity
My Dollarstore, Inc serves a large and growing market: consumers that want great deals on basic household products without having to cut corners to get them. Dollar stores are one of the fastest growing segments of the retail industry, part of the $25 billion dollar market for everyday products in the United States. In fact, discount stare are one of the few retail categories that experienced sales growth during the latest recession. As of September 2004, Wal-Mart, Family Dollar, Dollar General, Costco and Kohl’s all reported solid same-store sales gains over the last year, while most non-discount stores had lower sales.
As the US economic recession deepened, more customers put off buying discretionary items while looking for better values on basic products. “What has happened in recessions past is that consumers become more price-oriented and you get a down-market shift,” said Carl Steidtman, chief economist for Deloitte Research. “The tragedy of September 11 just accelerated that.”
My Dollarstore franchises have broad market appeal, offering shoppers a wide variety of quality products that are never over a fixed low price (usually one dollar), along with nice stores and friendly customer service. According to A.C. Neilson 62% of all American households shopped at a Dollarstore in 2004. Customers come from all walks of life and income levels, including families, single adults, students, senior citizens, and children and teenagers.
