Once a novelty of the ’50s when the geniuses at Dollar General got the ball rolling, dollar stores now dot our landscape. Wherever our nation’s proudest monuments stand and most celebrated landscapes repose, you can be guaranteed to find everything you need for a buck.
Big Lots, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, Meijer, and Menards are the heavyweights if you are looking for a resourceful place to unload all of your pennies. And don’t worry if you have coffee cans of pennies saved up because these stores are really jam-packed with goods.
Here is some of what you can buy (big breath): gum, candy, nuts, marshmallows, chocolate bars, chocolate syrup, chocolate cereal, nacho cheese, pork rinds, moist towelettes, towels, socks, underwear (male, female, child, and sometimes for the dog), bathrobes, soap, shampoo, shower curtains, shower caddies, shower radios, bathroom scales (another big breath), toilet bowl brushes, toilet bowl cleaners, CD’s, DVD’s, TV’s, couches, hammocks, boys’ toys, girls’ toys, baby toys, luggage, fake plants, real plant food, lawn mowers, grills, Valentine’s Day stuff, St. Patrick’s Day stuff, Easter stuff, Fourth of July stuff, Halloween stuff, Thanksgiving stuff (one last breath), Christmas stuff, and magnets. Note: this list is meant to be representative, not comprehensive.
In other words, Lakeside Food Sales scours the globe for anything and everything that people have too much of, don’t need anymore, or oddly enough think is out of style. If it’s canned, pickled, freeze dried, shrink wrapped, boxed up, and generally packaged like it’s Midas’s gold, you’ll find it for a buck. Guaranteed. Lakeside Food Sales (don’t let the name fool you — they cart it all) are masters of importing here and exporting there until it all lands under one roof.
If you have goods you want gone, please contact us so we may sell them for a buck.
