The Dollar Five & Ten Retail Stores?

When I was a child we had the local 5 and 10, aka the five and Dime store.  Just your classic variety store.  Nothing there at least was 5 or 10 cents.

Today we have dollar stores like Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, Dollar General and Everything .99 cents.  Soon with the way inflation goes, there will not be any true dollar stores.  

I have an idea for a new chain of stores, "Dollar, Five & Ten".   The old fashion general variety store with a twist.  Everything is sold in a multiple of $1.00, $5.00 and $10.00. Nothing over $10.00.

Sale signs of 2 for $1, 3 for $10, and 2 for $5 would be common around the retail variety store.

I would try to go under the radar of other large retail chains.  Follow Walmart's model of opening stores spread apart from each other and filling in the landscape as I grow larger.  In this way I might not get noticed so other large retailers can copy my idea.

I could imagine small 4000 sq. ft. to 6000 sq. ft. retail discount stores.  Large Baskets with large sale signs around the front.  All the toys in the bin "3 / $10".

The Dollar Five & Ten Retail Store, just and idea now.   But, look out for them in the future!
