Consumer Preferences Changing At Dollar Stores In 2022

Cadrene Heslop

Inflation is soaring in America. And shoppers are feeling the effects everywhere. More so with food. Their buying preferences are changing at fast food chains, Walmart, and other retailers. This new behavior is causing brands to change their financial outlook for the year. Plus, revise their inventory.

People who once went to grocery stores are switching. They are heading to discount shops and bulk buying warehouses. Dollar Stores are also seeing the buying needs of their consumers change. (source)

But the dollar stores are noticing one item is of most interest to shoppers. What is this item?

Shoppers are buying canned goods at discount stores. It is a high-demand item at these locations. (source)

The cost of fresh food is too much. When people are not shopping for canned products to save money, they sign up for bulk goods stores. Thus, they buy memberships at Sam's Club and Costco. The next move is to get products with the store label rather than well-known food brand items. (source)

Some shoppers cannot afford the cost of transportation plus grocery shopping. So, they go to nearby dollar stores and buy canned goods. Many dollar stores see more customers now than they did before. A spokesperson of Dollar General had this to say in an interview. (source)

"While Dollar General isn't a full-service grocer, we consider ourselves today's general store by providing nearby and affordable access to daily household essentials, including the components of a nutritious meal."
