Dollar Tree isn’t new to Sartell, in fact it has been here for a few years now. The Dollar Tree is located just off of Pinecone down 2nd Street South. Many people go Dollar Tree to find many things such as plastic storage containers, decorations for holidays coming up, snacks, toys, bathroom products and much more. In this article, I will be comparing Walgreens and Walmart against Dollar Store prices.

The Dollar Tree‘s franchise started in 1953 in downtown Norfolk, Virginia. The name first started out as K&K Toys, but later, in 1986, it changed to Only $1.00.  In 1991, the store was sold to KB Toys, and they changed the name to Dollar Tree.

In 1996, Dollar Tree bought 136 of the Dollar Bill$ stores that are in the Chicago area. Between the 2001-2004, Dollar Tree really took over many franchises such as 98- Cent Clearance, Only $One Store, Dollar Express, and Greenbacks. In 2006, they celebrated their 20th year and the opening of 3,000 stores across the U.S.

The year 2010 was their big year with the opening of 1,000 more stores and finally were able to open 86 Canadian stores called Dollar Giant in Vancouver, British Columbia. Ever since, the Dollar Tree franchise has been growing.

The Dollar Store and Walmart are both the same price but the Walmart one is cheaper. The Walgreens one is a known brand and is bigger then the other ones. The winner of the Pine is…. WALGREENS!

The Dollar Store had a cheaper bottle and a small size. The Walmart detergent is a known brand with a bigger size detergent. The Walgreens had the same value as Walmart, but the winner is… WALGREENS, with the brand name and bigger bottle.

The Werther’s all had the same sized bag and obviously, the winner is….DOLLAR STORE!

The batteries at the Dollar Store are generic and have eight batteries. The Walmart brand is Eveready and has four batteries. Walgreens is very expensive and has four batteries. The winner of the batteries is…WALMART!

After reviewing all the brands, the stores, and the cost, I have concluded that the better store is Walgreens. The prices of some of the items are cheap but you get your value back. The batteries are expensive but you get a better value with the long-lasting batteries. The Werther’s are 2/$4 and a much better deal. The detergent isn’t really expensive and you get a bottle. The Pine is more expensive, but it’s well-known brand, and its a bigger bottle.
