Candy and soda ,dollar store better buy here why? I was first at the supermarket the same soda and candy same size was 3.28 at the supermarket. So I told myself the dollar store is kind of next door. So I went there . The same soda and candy was $2.21. So you can see the difference I save in money. In New York state there is 5 cent deposit on all soda kind of drinks and bottle water to.

I love drinking soda with biscuits and bread. In my country, drinking soda only costs cents.

Parallel import. It is the same here. When the main distributor brings in the item, they are the middleman so they take a cut before the supermarkets take a cut. The dollar shop and other stores compete by bringing in the imports directly, cutting out the middleman.

I drink soda out of cans and when I buy for the house I buy it by the case, giving each can the price of .50 cents per can. Candy is expensive but you can get that cheaper if you buy multi-bar packs. I remember when I could go to the store and buy a soda, pack of chips and a candy bar for less than a quarter. Those days are gone, so now we either pay full price, buy in bulk or go to a dollar store. The reason they can sell it cheaper is because they get the surplus. After the major retailers orders have been fulfilled the dollar stores get the surplus.

New York state does have a law written about bringing item in From other state were no deposit was paid . If caught there a big fine. So be careful if you do it.

I have been going to the dollar store for most of my treats. I am going to dollar tree this fine day to get some food for the week. The soda is also a buck at my dollar store.

I don't drink soda, but much of the candy sold at the dollar store is old, or may have been exposed to heat. A lot is off brand and inferior.

I have no idea how much the candy costs, a bottle of soda is very inexpensive in most of our supermarket. This little bottle costs around 50 cents.
