Major annoyance

Today, I'm a college student working at Dollar Tree. The signs hanging every 10 ft, plastered on every box, every wall, every corner, say "Everything's $1." Someone asked me how much something was, because there was no price tag. This happens multiple times a day. FML

But #20, anything that's more or less than a dollar would have a price on it. If there's no price tag, that means its one dollar. That's how it works where I live, anyway. So asking for a price is still pretty dumb.

Maybe people just don't believe that everything is a dollar and think there's a catch of some sort.
Like stores that advertise one price but the fine print indicates you have to have a store card to get that price.

44 - at every Dollar Tree I've been in, nothing has a price tag physically on the item but many items are $0.59 or two or three for a dollar. The only place the price is listed for those items is on the shelf where they're usually stocked. If someone finds one of these items elsewhere throughout the store, such as is the case when customers stash things they no longer want or if an employee restocks the item in the wrong location, the only way to know how much the item is is to hunt for it yourself elsewhere in the store or ask an employee about it.

The Dollar Tree is not just any dollar store. The Dollar Tree always has the $1 signs plastered everywhere, and when something isn't exactly $1, it's clearly labelled.

Well at my dollar tree, I think there's about 5 different items for $1. Everything else is higher then that. Asking the price of something is what I typically would do as I don't assume anything in this world anymore.


#20 though I agree, I would like to say that it kind of depends on the store tax included. Like Dollar General doesn't have a lot for at least $1 whereas Dollar Tree does (at least from what I've seen).

I think that most people that do this actually just do it to see if they can get a reaction out of the employee. Some people find that kind of stuff funny..

#131 it's for the exact reason you stated. Someone copied a comment that has already been said and been noticed, it's begging for the likes

I mean, I'm just not sure. Is it one dollar, tax included, or a dollar plus tax? I walked in here looking for a brain for my scarecrow friend and all he gave me was a crumpled up one and less change than the Obama presidency.

my pound store has signs on every wall saying every thing's a pound but I bought a set of drawers which were 5.99£ it didn't have a price on it I had to ask someone.
so, yeah It happens, sometimes not everything is a pound so to speak.

I have been to a few dollar stores that had things like $10 and under, but really if there are signs everywhere saying that everything is $1 they are REALLY oblivious to their surroundings
