So Expensive Series - Dollar Stores
A short trip to the dollar store might actually cost you more in the long run.
If it seems like dollar stores are everywhere these days, it's probably because they are. At the beginning of 2022, there were roughly 35,000 dollar stores in the United States. It's easy to see why these discount stores can be appealing--they're designed for convenient travel, quick stops, and cheap products. But can these low prices mean high costs in the long run? Discuss this with your students in NGPF's activity series based on Business Insider's web series: So Expensive and other videos.
Students will watch a video about a specific product or service, identify the specific factors of production that impact its price, and dig deeper by answering a few thought-provoking questions.
