The allure of the treasure hunt is as alive today as it was when Just A Buck opened its first location in Poughkeepsie, NY in 1988, and it is growing every day! In a time when there seems to be a dollar store on every street corner you turn, Just A Buck stores will always stand out from the competition. They have the ability to consistently stock their stores with inventory that has a perceived value of well over a dollar, while maintaining a desirable gross profit margin. Just A Buck’s twenty years of experience has given them a keen sense of the what merchandise the cost conscious dollar store shoppers seek. They do not warehouse any inventory, nor do they own any trucks to transport goods. They have long established relationships with closeout vendors who drop ship deliveries to each Just A Buck location. Their business model is set up as a “win win;” Just A Buck does not derive revenue from the inventory going into the store, their revenue is on the royalty fee when the merchandise is sold. Just A Buck’s philosophy hasn’t changed over the years, very clean, well lit stores with merchandise displayed attractively in an organized fashion to provide the consumer with a very pleasant shopping experience. It is this formula that has enabled this small but unique chain of dollar stores to compete with the large corporate giants.
