An $8.5 billion merger creating North America's biggest dollar store chain could mean increased competition for mass discounters such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. but less choice for shoppers. In the Baltimore area and elsewhere, retail experts said, Dollar Tree Inc.'s planned purchase of Family Dollar Stores Inc., announced Monday, likely will lead to some store closings, though the companies have not identified any locations. Dollar Tree, which runs mostly suburban stores and sells a mix of consumables as well as items such as gifts, party goods and greeting cards for $1 or less, has about 55 stores in the Baltimore area.

Three Baltimore City men arrested last month after a convenience store robbery in Towson were indicted earlier this week on 39 counts each on charges stemming from nine separate robberies in Baltimore County, according to Baltimore County Circuit Court records. The three men - Adrian Walden, 25, of the 4900 block of Ross Road, Da'Mon Williams, 30, of the 100 block of North Milton Street, and Solomon Dunn, 37, of the 1700 block of Lamont Avenue - were initially charged in four armed robberies across the county on Nov. 14. Prosecutors indicted them in relation to five more incidents on Monday, Dec. 2. The indictments outline a four-week stretch between Oct. 21 and Nov. 13 in which the three men robbed restaurants and businesses from Milford Mill to Rosedale, including several in Towson.

Gmart International Foods, a five-store supermarket chain with two Maryland locations, will open in the next 60 days in the former Santoni's Super Market site in Highlandtown, the shopping center's landlord said Monday. Gmart signed a long-term lease on the 27,000-square-foot space last week, said Michael Jacoby, CEO of Bethesda-based Broad Street Realty, which leased the space. The center also has a Rite Aid and a Dollar Tree, and a Subway will open soon. “We think they are a good tenant for that community,” Jacoby said.

As Carolyn Lowery rang up purchases for customers, she had to keep repeating one thing: "Yes, everything is just a buck."Well, almost everything. Just two gift sections at Just a Buck have merchandise bearing more than the usual $1 price tag. But 95 percent of the merchandise sells for a dollar.One-price stores, popular in outlet centers, have moved closer to the city and are popping up in suburban malls. The retail concept is simple -- everything in the store sells for one low price or less.

ATLANTA -- Edwin Worrell struts down the aisle, waving his hands and pointing with satisfaction as he passes the shelves he installed at his Dollar Smart store in Buford, Ga. On display are toys, paper goods, pet items, stationery, candles, sunglasses, shampoo, CDs, gift bags, soap, balloons, coffee mugs. ... And on and on. Prices are rising, consumer confidence is wobbling, the economy is slowing, but you wouldn't know it here. "Everything is a dollar - at least 99 percent of it," said Worrell, who also owns the Dollar Smart in Dacula, Ga. Dollar stores are not immune to inflation, but with a mix of hustle, hardball, selectivity and luck, they seemingly battle it to a standstill.

My recent visit to one of the more than 16,000 dollar stores that dot our land found many items we've come to expect from these stores that aggressively have picked up where the old F.W. Woolworth & Co. dime stores left off. I carefully examined but did not buy the party cups, clothesline, makeup brushes, laundry detergent, paint scraper set, toy...

What can you get for a buck? A recent shopping trip found ties, hexagonal cheese graters, ceramic soap dispensers, belts, a lot of marshmallow peanuts and a Dragnet DVD with three episodes. Go elsewhere to see where your buck takes you. There's the "Dollar Menu" at McDonald's and Wendy's "Super Value Menu." "Just a buck" has become a particularly popular way to lure consumers. Apparently, it works. The dollar-store mentality is even spreading to the Internet. On iTunes, you can get songs for 99 cents.
