99 Cents Only Store comes to Lakeside (sort of)

Post by Clueless on Tue May 30, 2017 5:36 pm

Walmart has put in an "annex" just before the entrance where they have most, if not all, items on sale for $17.90 which at the present Xchange rate to the US$, is about US$0.99.

No food items but shampoos, small misc. things and name brand batteries. A lot more. I should have taken pictures but - - - -

I think it's worth a look.

Sounds like what Target tried to do when they opened multiple stores in Canada (and we all know how successful that venture was...they're all gone now!.... Blackeye )
As soon as you walked in the entrance, there was a .99 section with about 3 shelving units with cute little plastic toys, colouring books, trinkets, etc.

I admit, the Walmart 99 Cents has a lot of things; hair products, shampoo, etc. Of course you may just get the quality yu pay for there.

Many companies make special runs for some stored.

A few years ago I noticed Soriana has a sale on some T-FAL cookware. One of those so many pesos with xx points. I noticed the box said "Made specially for Soriana." So I took the display one over to the shelf where thee other T-FAL items were and found the same size pan. I held one in one hand and the other in the other hand. The more expensive shelf model was much heavier than the special deal Soriana was giving.

Walmart has dollar store sections in PV and Manzanillo that are, and have been, very popular and successful.

They have some pretty nice dish towels in the back. Lots of things to see. I was impressed.

There are some square glass dessert bowls for 17.90 the same in Walmart 23pesos
But I wonder how long you can sell nickel and dime stuff give the floor space rent they must be paying

Isn't it just a separate entity of the Walmart operation and not a different business?
Walmart owns the location.

I hate big box stores of all kinds but especially WalMart. You never know where anything might be.

I've grown to love MX hardware stores. They can produce anything you want. They must have a back room that is acres in size. You can buy one screw or a whole bathroom in one.
