You Can't Call it a Dollar Store if it Doesn't Cost a Dollar!

Ok, we all know the Dollarama is now selling stuff for $1.25 or $2. Why? How come two months ago it was worth a dollar but now it's worth more? AND how do you decide what should cost more? Let's be serious everything in the store is either discontinued shit from other companies that you bought for a pittance, or it was made for "Dollarama" in China. Actually the same stuff is sold at the Everything for a Pound Store in the U.K., The 100 Yen Store in Japan, etc. The same children are making this "crap" for worldwide distribution. And hey, admit it, if it weren't for child labour laws in China we wouldn't have half of what we own, so get over it. But I always used to sing "When you're alone and life is getting you down you can always the Dollar Store!". We all do it. Heck I know multi millionaires who do (well one, but she does do it). Now, I don't know, it's still a deal, but I just don't spend as much. $5 doesn't buy me as much useles shit joy anymore. Maybe their marketing team needs to re-think things, 'cause if it doesn't cost a dollar, the Dollarama name doesn't carry the same spark.
Of course if you follow that logic you also shouldn't be able to buy multiple things for a dollar....So I'll shut up now lest that ends up being trashed too!
Oh Dollarama, why did you have to change?
