Dollar Multiplication

Turns out, dollar stores are pretty much everywhere.
Carpe Diem:"3. There are 5.6 dollar stores in the U.S. for every one Walmart.  "
What the implication of this is in your life, I do not know.

The Atlantic Cities also chimes in, with this helpful image of Dollar Store Density per 10,000 from a report by Colliers:
 "Dollar General, with 9,600 stores, positions itself as rural America’s convenience store. 
More than 70% of its stores serve communities with fewer than 20,000 residents
...In contrast, Family Dollar locates in urban, suburban, and rural areas, but less desirable areas 
of large markets, a.k.a. “food deserts,” are its sweet spot. Urban areas force convenience 
retailers to focus more on price to combat competition. "
