How come the so-called dollar stores sell stuff for a lot more than a dollar?

Looks like there's a shortage of Tate & Lyle golden syrup in Canuckstan at the moment, I hear they changed suppliers. When Walmart used to knock out a tin for $4 I'm not going north of 20 just to fly the flag! The miniwheels will have to wait.

Dollar Tree near us has been shut down by the health authority folks for health violations and repeated warnings being ignored about rodent issue.

We went to an underground dollarama yesterday; you go through a sketchy doorway next to no frills, down some stairs... and inside of nude wimmen, a massive dollarama.

Mini wheel pondered whether it was legal or not.
