99 Cent Stores Closing Doors

371 Locations Will Be Shutting Down Business
99 Cent Stores Closing Doors

371 99-Cent Stores are closing down. The 99-Cent Store has been around since 1982. Over 41 years ago, Dave Gold founded the store. The retail chain has had prominent locations in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Texas. The company also operates Bargain Wholesale, which sells wholesale to retailers across the United States and exports to more than 15 countries from Los Angeles.

It’s really sad to see the store shut down. I, myself, have grown up with it, and always thought it would be around. Me and my family have always gone to it for every basic need. I live by one and recently went there and found EVERYTHING is gone! All products are on sale. Many people are sad it’s going away because the store was always affordable.
