Colorado Dollar Tree Prices Go Up

Shopping at Colorado Dollar Tree stores always made you feel rich, didn't it? Just throwing things in the cart or basket, never checking prices, money was of no option when you had a twenty dollar bill in your pocket. Sadly, that run of an entire store full of stuff that will never cost you more than $1 has come to an end. as prices at Dollar Tree are on the rise.

Colorado Dollar Tree Stores Charging Up To $5

I was in the local Longmont Dollar Tree over the weekend to grab some balloons for my wife, and of course, I had to mosey around the store, right? I knew they were kicking things up a quarter so a lot of stuff was now $1.25 but I had to take a double-take when I saw an entire aisle full of what they're calling "Dollar Tree Plus" items.

Yup, as seen in the sign, you can now end up spending up to $5 at the Dollar Tree. Does that mean we might get some more quality stuff in these stores? It looks like it.

I'd imagine they're junk, but if you're kids take care or track of stuff as poorly as mine all do, I'll buy $5 Bluetooth headphones all day!

They've got some cool graphic t's too, including my guy, Mickey Mouse, for $5 which is a score.

Some quality stuff, right? Am I bummed that I can no longer roll in and pretend I'm rich? Sure. I'm stoked though to still be able to find some real scores in the "Plus" sections of the store as I now have a place to birthday shop again. If your Dollar Tree hasn't added these items yet, it's coming soon to all Colorado Dollar Tree stores.
