This Discount Chain Has Big Expansion Plans

Dollar stores have done notably well over the past year for a number of reasons. It's not surprising, then, that one discount chain is making plans to capitalize on all of that recent success. Furthermore, whereas other retailers -- notably, big-box stores -- might adopt the strategy of becoming one-stop shopping destinations for customers who will, in turn, spend a substantial amount of money at each visit, discount stores like Five Below aren't looking to eat up a third of the typical consumer's paycheck per shopping trip.
