What’s Inside

The discount retail chain is known nationwide for having awesome deals on products for “tweens and teens” that would be more expensive elsewhere – and they’re all “high-quality.”

The shop is known for having a huge candy (5 for $5!) and snacks selection, little fun odds and ends, and toys and accessories for kids. It also has neat tech products sold at an affordable price, beauty and personal care products, apparel and shoes, pet supplies, seasonal and party decorations, and more.

While the concept is “five” dollars or below, prices range and can go up to $10. However, there are a ton of good deals for $5 like backpacks, throw pillows, stereo headphones, phone cases, and beach towels.

For $10, consumers can get a deluxe studio ring light and tripod, a digital alarm clock with a wireless charging pad, a wireless Bluetooth speaker, a collapsible pet carrier, and a karaoke single speaker with a mic set…Hence the slogan of “Hot stuff. Cool prices.”
