Low Prices, High Expectations

Low-cost is the new luxury. And boy, do we love our bargains. Cheap labor in China, improved manufacturing, and faster time-to-market have enabled discount retailers to provide quality products at low, low prices. Shopping cheap is in style, and it’s changing how all kinds of consumers consume. While the overall retail sector sunk during the recession, discounters grew.[1] And they're still growing. In 2012, for example, dollar stores boosted their US household penetration rate to 65.1% as consumers search for cheaper products.[2] This means that, even as the economy continues to heal, we may stay loyal to low-cost retailers.
