Cienga) - (310) 670-9900 -
99 Cent Only stores has items at 99 cents
or less (e.g. 2 for .99). The selection changes, depending on what
they have been able to purchase at prices below .99. The items here
fall into several categories: 1) those that are small sizes, and thus
might normally sell for .99 or less. These items are occasionally
more expensive unit price wise than what you might pay at a grocery
store, but in general a pretty good deal. 2) items that the .99 cent
store purchases as surplus from stores and liquidaters. These can
often be very good deals, but the selection changes all the time. And
3) lower quality items from vendors you probably have never heard of.
These too can be a good buy if you aren't buying something to last or
where quality might not be an issue.
