Start a Dollar Store Today, for as little as $65,900: A Business Opportunity without Franchise Restrictions

Dollar Stores have been a proven investment opportunity for decades, and their popularity exploded after the recession. They offer lower prices and better shopping experiences than the big box discounters, and dollar store merchandise has expanded into convenience and grocery store staples. Their popularity has sparked suppliers into exclusively making merchandise for dollar stores, giving discount offerings significantly higher quality.

  • Franchises demand a royalty on your revenue before you even make a profit.
