Dollar Tree Upping Their One Dollar Price for First Time in Decades

Going from $1 to $1.25.

It’s known for its 1-dollar price tag for all products…but not anymore. The bargain chain Dollar Tree is raising its prices for the first time in three decades, and surprisingly it’s not due to inflation. By the beginning of next year, items will be $1.25. The retailer says the price hike will give them more flexibility to bring back customer favorites and also introduce new items. The company also claims the increase will help with freight and distribution costs as well as wage increases. Dollar Tree has sold products for a buck for 35-years.
