Is the 97p store run by anarchists, or did they not research what that colour combination means?

At least here in Canada, most “dollar stores” are actually “dollar and up” stores - i.e. they’re not advertising a price ceiling but a price floor. “Nothing cheaper than a dollar!” Srsly. I don’t get it, myself.

Here we have one chain that advertises “1 Euro” in big letters. Next to that it says “and up”. But even that is a lie. They sell stuff that costs less, too.

Or rather we used to have it here, because the one in my - ahem - emerging post-industrial city closed down. Yay, my city!

We have the best here in the New York/New Jersey metro area:

99 Cents Up & Less

Every price is valid! I still feel that it’s a missed opportunity to embrace ambiguity and simply state it as “A Dollar, More or Less”


#6

Does anything cost exactly 99c, or is it only up or less?


#7

There are 99c items! And 79 and 1.29! and sometimes other prices too!


#8

Here in the US we have 61 pence stores.

Here’s my two cents: just think of how much money you saved!


#11

Not enough savings to be useful at the “That and a nickel will buy you a cup of coffee” restaurant down the block.
