    One Dollar Is the Best Price Point Ever

    Cal Turner Jr., retired chief executive officer of Dollar General Corp. and this week's guest on Masters in Business, likes to explain how his father came up with the concept of dollar pricing. Department stores in Louisville, Kentucky, and Nashville, Tennessee, would run monthly advertisements for "dollar days,” one day each month when merchandise cost a dollar. Cal Sr. figured the retailers had to be making money on the discount days because they were clearly spending a lot on advertising and they kept on doing it.

    U.S. dollar-store shares marked down but specialty discounters thrive

    The shares of so-called dollar stores have suffered as U.S. shoppers have started spending more at bargain retailers with focused concepts and big discount chains. Once thought to be insulated from the retail industry's challenges, the dollar stores, which got the name because they try to price items for $1 or less, such as Dollar General Corp (DG.N), Dollar Tree Inc (DLTR.O) and Big Lots Inc (BIG.N) derive much of their sales from household staples. Appealing to trend-watchers and bargain hunters has helped Ollie's and Five Below stand out while other discounters face intensifying competition from new entrants such as German chains Aldi and Lidl, analysts and investors said.
