    So FI and I went into Dollarama today to pick up a bunch of things and as we walked in we were greeted by a big sign at the door (and signs ALL OVER the store) stating that their products will no longer all be $1. The products will now be either $1, $1.50 or $2.

    For right now it will only be new products that they receive that will see the price increase but the cashier told me that eventually they will be changing the prices on things currently in the store. As we walked through, you could see new items with $2 price stickers on them! FI and I picked up everything that we needed today before the price changes on any of their old stuff!

    I heard that this was going to happen but I guess I was in denial. FI was making fun of me because he could see how disappointed I was - I am in love with Dollarama (I'm a teacher and buy SO many things there). Now I know that it isn't a huge price increase but I liked the fact that everything was $1.

    Just thought I'd give you a heads up in case there is some stuff you need to get!

      I heard about this too and it made me sad I bought lots of OOT bag stuff there last year and now I buy scrapbooking stuff there. It's got fabulous things!

        Their reasoning for the $2 items is that they will apparently be of "higher quality". I haven't been to Dollarama since the price increase, so I have no idea, but I really hope they keep the items that are currently $1 the same price. If they up ALL the prices, I will be very sad

          I ABSOLUTELY love Dollarama too. I was disappointed at first, but "so far" the things that are more than a dollar are visibly better quality than those things that are still at $1. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

            That really sucks. I love Dollarama, but this is disappointing.

                I was there the other day and have to say they are bringing in differenn items that they couldn't price at a dollar. I saw they are adding onsies (diaper shirts for babies) for $2 which is still a great price. Hopefully that is what will be happening more then just raising the price of the other $1 items.
