Hey guys welcome back to do it on a dime with Katherine. I have been shopping at the Dollar Tree since 2011, so I’ve been at this game for a while. It’s asking Katherine. How are you finding what you’re finding what are the best secrets for shopping at Dollar Tree? What are your secrets so today I am dishing my ten best secrets for maximizing your time at the Dollar Tree. I’m actually a little bit scared to give these away cuz. What if my store, is sell out of all this stuff for my DIYs, but I’m forging onward? I can’t wait to share these with you guys, tip 1 is to understand the trucks for your local Dollar Tree.
The biggest key to success is knowing when deliveries happen. So just ask your store employee and not only when the trucks are delivered, but when does that merchandise go and hit the floor of the store? When is this stock put out from my store? It’s always on a Thursday, so I know I’m really likely to find great stuff. If I go on Thursdays, tip 2 is to understand the holiday schedule and when new products roll out for each of the major holidays, those items are going to hit the floor about one month before the holiday actually takes place. Christmas is a little bit earlier because real celebrating starts around December 1st, so you can expect November 1st those things are going to hit the floor. Things tend to sell out very very quickly, so it’s important to know that if you’re looking for something specific, so there’s gonna be two different ways for each season. It’s summertime right now, but the first wave of fall stuff has comes and then in the end of July, you’ll see the second wave of fall stuff because they want everything out before August. Find your store strength in some stores. Home decor is not going to sell. Very well so, when you go in there, the selection is going to be super limited. Remember that that community’s sales are driving what is actually delivered to that store. It also helps to know where the banner stores are that’s pretty much the biggest store in the area, because, whatever is that, that store is going to be at the surrounding stores.
So if there is a larger store – and those tend to be it – that’s another great place to shop, my next step is to know what to order online historically used to have to order a full case, but now you can actually order less for some items. You can order just six units and it ships to the store for free. You go into the store when it arrives, and you pick up your box and everything is all ready to go. This is great for things like dinnerware plate chargers. Maybe you have a DIY or you want to get some of those mirrors to create something really beautiful. Don’t waste your gas money in your time just order it online and pick it up in your store. The next step is to understand your stores. Policy Dollar Tree. Does not accept returns, only even exchanges, but you can use coupons and, what’s even better is you can use digital coupons, so you can save even more money.
