If you’re anything like us and don’t like wasting your time and money while shopping, you’ll be happy to know that Canada’s largest dollar store chain, Dollarama, has finally launched its online store.
That means that starting today you can stock up on hundreds of Dollarama products from the comfort of your home and get them delivered right to your doorstep.
You can shop such popular categories as food, cleaning products, hardware, clothing, health and beauty products, electronics, kitchen, decorations, products for pets and much more. The online store also offers products that you won’t be able to find in regular Dollarama stores.
According to Narcity, “The official launch comes after five weeks of pilot testing in Quebec, but now Canadian shoppers from coast-to-coast can shop for housewares, cleaning supplies, kitchen essentials and more online.”
However, if you think that this sounds too good to be true, you’re right. There are some significant drawbacks that will make you think twice before you place your order.
Just like Costco, the online store is offering products in bulk, which means you won’t be able to buy products in individual quantities. However, their online and in-store prices are identical.
“For example, if you wanted some Excel gum, which Dollarama normally sells in store for $0.75/pack, online you would have to buy a case of 216, which would cost $162. This is a huge quantity of gum, but if you are a big gum chewer, that is a really good deal, ” Narcity points out.
As we reported earlier, the goal of their new online platform is to cater to clients looking to make large-scale purchases, including event companies looking for cheap wine glasses or an art school looking for cheap art supplies.
Another drawback of the online store is that there is a flat-rate shipping fee of $18 regardless of the size of your order.
