Dollar Stores Soon to Be Dollar-And-A-Half Stores?

The Chicago Sun-Times has an interesting story about how dollar stores are coping with rising inflation.

The sign at Frankfort's Dollar Central reads: Most Everything Everyday $1.10.

It's literally a sign of the economic times.

When owner Cindy Stuart hand-painted the ".10" during the first week of January, she said it nearly killed her. Adding the "Most" a few weeks ago was just as distressing.

"It was very difficult," she said. "I really tried to keep it at a dollar. That was always the plan. Unfortunately, the economy changed that plan."
