  • “Twenty-five years ago, you saw dollar stores inside strip malls and supermarkets because they generated some decent traffic. In the last 10 years, their amount of consumables has increased to the point that they’re a major competitor.”
  • “If you talk to millennials, you learn that many of them haven’t stepped foot in a traditional supermarket for a very long time.”
  • “I don’t see their growth being as exponential as it’s been in the past, but I don’t think it’s going away.  I think you’re seeing evolution with the urban format, and I think you’re going to see more and more evolution in food and consumables.”
  • “One growth avenue for dollar companies is targeting convenience stores, which offer similar goods and the same sort of fill-in shopping trips.  They’ve got c-store products at dollar store prices, and they’re in the same places as c-stores.”
