Mom!

I have horrible news! The Dollar Tree store no longer carries Mrs. Freshley's "Delicious Deals" mini-donuts! I suppose the wholesale price has gone up to where Dollar Tree can no longer sell them for a dollar. (They're $1.50 elsewhere.)

I suppose that's what happens when one's business model is "Everything's a Dollar". Even at very moderate inflation rates, there will eventually come a time when almost everything is more than a dollar. What will happen to Dollar Tree when that day arrives? Will they rebrand themselves "Dollar-and-a-Half Tree" where "Everything's a Buck-Fifty"?
