Dollarama Canada: Items Now Available at $4


A while back, Dollarama announced that prices would be increasing this year and the $4 items are now appearing in stores.  Some items are ones that were previously priced at $3 but they are also introducing new products that they could not afford to sell at $3.

When this was first announced, they said that the price increase would allow them to accept credit card payments as well as deal with the exchange rate on the loonie.  They started a pilot project with credit cards in BC already.

Dollar Tree still has all items priced at $1.25 or less if you are looking for lower priced deals.  Will you buy items at $4?

    I am going to check out the Dollar tree more often now. I am on a limited budget somI have to follow the cheaper deals.

    It’s definitely not dollarama anymore. Who needs to pay with credit card and no one asked for new products. Go back to everything at a dollar. This is just stupid.

    I can confirm that the Dollarama in Midtown Mall in Oshawa, ON just told me they received the $3.50 and $4.00 stickers now. She said it would mostly be limited to food items and health and beauty. However, only time will tell when i re-visit that location.

      The earlier press releases said that food is the one thing not going up. I found $4 items mostly in craft, kitchen and kids sections

    I try to only use Dollar Tree now.

    I’ll probably still go, as there are some “brand name” items that are still cheaper than Walmart or Superstore – even at $4.

    That being said, some of the price increases do irk me a bit. I.e I buy the Huggies baby wipes from them, and when I first had my baby, they were packs of 64 for $2. Then they went up to $2.50. Now the amount has been reduced to a 56 count pack, and the price at most locations is now $3.

    It’s one thing to pay more for the same product. It’s a different story to pay more for less!

    The Dollar Tree has limited items, there is only so much they can sell for $1.25. Dollarama has some great things for $3, which Dollar Tree could never have, and which would cost a lot more at a regular store. I’m looking forward to seeing the new items for $4.

    Dollerama was has more and more crap the past two years. I’ll be visiting any Dollerama less, and one day, hopefully Dollerama will go the route of Bargain Harolds.

    This has nothing to do with the Loonie it has to do with, Dollerama is selling crap for less then they should.

  8. Candice Podvin says:

    Pretty soon they will have to call themselves a “$5 and $10”, like in the old days, only dollars instead of cents.

    Obviously, it depends on the item. There are lots of great buys on craft and decor items that would cost much more if purchased elsewhere.I don’t buy any food items at a dollar store- just too many fraudulent manufacturers.

  10. George says:

    In Calgary (AB) they also already accept credit cards.

    But besides that Dollarama is in general too expensive. And sometimes you think they are cheaper but then check size…. For instance paper plates with the same design often have almost double the plates in a pack at Dollar tree and plastic gloves often have more in a pack else where to (just two examples)

    If its an item I can use,and that might cost double or more somewhere else,I would pay $4

    It doesn’t feel like Dollarama anymore…few years back when we used to go to store , spending 10-12$ was more than enough and you get any 10 things in your hand, more bags and less money…now each time i go i pay more than 30 bucks each time..and when i look at the things i feel like i didnt buy anything…sometimes i think its better to go to walmart or costco and get bundles..which will end up costing less than dollarstore..

  13. L. Hughes says:

    I will still go to Dollarama. It is a Canadian owned company where as Dollar Tree is an American based company.

  14. Michael Dolan says:

    Increasingly I have been very dissatisfied with Dollarama and the quality of the products for the price. For example, I bought a $3 potato masher and the very first time I pushed down, the handle slid off. I just go to buy something twice the cost and 5 times the quality.

  15. Anna says:

    Will definitely still shop at Dollarama. Didn’t see this post and was surprised when I was at the store yesterday and saw $4 items. However, I still find the prices for most items a bargain compared to other stores and I like that they sometimes have name brand items, not just stuff specifically made for dollar stores. I still save a ton of money so will definitely continue going.

    • Christopher says:

      You’ll buy the same crap at Dolllerama pay now the same as Wal-Mart or other retailers with the exception you cannot get a refund or return the item if its defective or tastes bad; that doesn’t make sense.

      Extremely less business for me at Dollerama until they look like empty stores with no customers, remind you of past retailers in Canada that are now gone in the wind. Canadian or not; pulling stunts as this doesn’t exclusively make you Canadian it makes you like any other company whether in Canada, USA, South America etc.
