News Flash: 99 Cent Stores to Abandon 99 Cent Philosophy?

  • A higher minimum wage and increased commodity prices have the 99 Cents Only Stores chain considering bumping some prices above 99 cents. The company's CEO hopes customers will focus on prices as great values and not whether an item is 99 cents. — The Los Angeles Times
  • Here come the advertisements: Airlines are pursuing more aggressive in-flight marketing deals to combat fuel costs. Advertisers are keen to the idea as passengers offer a very captive audience. Watch out for ads on your tray tables, air-sickness bags, and in-flight entertainment systems. — CNN Money
  • A look at credit card debt worldwide: Thirty years ago, Turkey had fewer than 10,000 cards; today it has more than 38 million. — The New York Times

that's where i shopped when i was on a tight college budget. Everything is 99 cents even if the package says it's more...sometimes they even have 2 for 99 or 3 for 99 cent deals.

there's actually one by my mom's house in NJ and there are quite a few 99 cent stores in NYC and i love them. you'd be surprised with what you can get there - there are actually GREAT products. i get tons of stuff that you'd normally pay a lot more for in regular stores - so i'm all for them. i can understand why some would go higher cause of the cost of things going up - but these stores sell the surplus of things, so it shouldn't make an impact really... as for the airlines - i work in advertising, and i've been getting calls from reps for AGES about in flight advertising - if it's in their magazine, on the tray tables, on the programming - it's nuts!

As far as I know not everything in a 99 cent store was 99 cents.
