Spuneam aici cum Raiul e in criza si magazinele se inchid intr-o veselie http://lumeaaltfel.blogspot.com/2010/12/raiul-in-criza.html
Ei bine, nu toate magazinele se inchid : unele mai si prospera ! Cine prospera ? Pai cine vinde cel mai ieftin, bineinteles ... ca doar e stiut cum canadienii ( marea lor majoritate ) traiesc de la un salariu la altul, si daca sunt dati afara, sunt in deep shit cu datorii de miii de dloari atarnate de coada .
Dollarama e magazinul " de salvare " , care vindea totul la 1 dolar. E un fel de magazin d'ala chinezesc din romania, unde totul era 35.000 ( 1 euro ) , doar ca la noi marfa e foarte mult diversificata. Gasesti cam tot ce ai nevoie in casa ; de la mancare, la haine, jucarii, obiecte de bucatarie, detergenti, etc. Totul la ...1,25 plus taxe si 2 $ plux taxe. Ca s-a scumpit : a venit criza si la chinezi ... vorba vine ...
Bine, majoritatea obiectelor sunt proaste calitativ, dar cui ii pasa ? La banii astia, iti bagi picioarele in ea de demnitate, mai ales cand muncesti pe 10-13 $ / ora .... Acuma, serios vorbind, cumpar 2 linguri de lemn cu 1,25 $ din Dollarama, in loc sa cumpar aceleasi linguri cu 4 $ din supermarket : si le folosesc la fel de mult pe amandoua ... Sau 5 creioane / pixuri la 1,25 ... sau 100 tampoane demachiante la 1,25 ....
Sau o ciocolata ( expirata ? ) la 1,25 $ din dollarama, cand in magazin cumparam aceeasi ciocolata ( expirata ? ) cu 3 $ : ca oricum n-au data de expirare, asa ca ...
Dollarama zice ca anul asta s-a extins cu ...45 de magazine in Canada. Iar pe anul urmator, vrea sa se extinda cu inca 50 de bucati ! Sa mai zica cineva ca numai Veve e amarata in Canada si cumpara ieftin .... Dollarama sta marturie ca se bulucesc clientii, de nu mai fac fata chinezii sa deschida noi si noi magazine ! Vanzarile au crescut, de la 312,8 milioane, la 355,7 milioane. "Sales rose to $355.7 million from $312.8 million."
Si nu doar ca se extind, insa vor sa-si si diversifice marfa : sa puna marfa cu preturi de pana in 20 $ ! Asta-i atac direct sub centura Walmart-ului ... Ca si Walmart-ul e plin tot de amarasteni ( cautati pe net profilul clientului obisnuit de Walmart si va veti convinge ) ...

.Dollarama targets West as it accelerates discount network expansion in 2011

By Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press
MONTREAL - Dollarama will accelerate store expansion next year, particularly in Western Canada as the Montreal-based retailer continues to build the leading Canadian discount chain.
The company plans to add 50 stores in 2011 with one-third to 40 per cent of the growth being focused in Western Canada. That follows some 45 stores added in the past year, mostly in Ontario.
"With the penetration rate we have in Quebec, 900 to 1,000 stores doesn't seem to be a problem," Larry Rossy, CEO of the chain which currently has more than 600 stores, said Wednesday during a conference call.
However, Rossy wouldn't say if that is the ultimate size the chain hopes to one day run. Much depends on available locations and market opportunities.
But Dollarama (TSX:DOL) said its business model, which limits prices to $2, means it can't expand as much as some U.S. players which offer a broader range of products valued up to $20.
Much of the growth out West will be in free-standing big box locations. While it will add some larger stores elsewhere, the decision about size will be made on a store-by-store basis, Rossy said.
Dollarama said its profits surged to $31.3 million in the third-quarter as the discount retailer's sales increased 13.7 per cent and expenses were tightened.
Diluted earnings per share were 42 cents for the three-month period ended Oct. 31, compared with a profit of $1.1 million or two cents per share a year earlier.
Sales rose to $355.7 million from $312.8 million.
Analysts had forecast Dollarama would earn 38 cents per share on $351 million in revenues.
Much of the increase in revenue was the result of 45 new store openings over the past year and the sale of higher-priced items. It also benefited from lower interest expenses from reducing its debt and an eight per cent increase in sales at stores open at least a year.
The comparable stores sales growth was the result of a 1.6 per cent increase in the number of transactions and a 6.3 per cent increase in the average transaction size.
The pace of the same-store sales growth should weaken but will remain between three and eight per cent going forward, Rossy told analysts.
Dollarama enjoyed very strong sales growth last Christmas amid perfect shopping weather conditions. Same-store sales grew by 17 per cent last December.
"We can get knocked around pretty badly with weather, which we have been in the last week or so. And when you're talking weather in December that's big dollars."
Interest expense decreased $24.7 million to $7.3 million in the quarter, due primarily to the lower debt level following the company's initial public offering.
It used cash generated from operating activities to make a $90-million principal prepayment on its new credit facility and a scheduled $6.6-million quarterly instalment. In the quarter, Dollarama opened 17 stores and closed one as its 639-store network had 6.3 million square fee
Dollarama completed the deployment of point-of-sale scanners in all stores as it continues to add items prices above $1 and automates its inventory replenishment efforts.
About 40 per cent of its products sold for more than $1. Rossy said that number should creep up to 50 per cent as inflation grows in China, where most of the products are sourced.
Neil Linsdell of Versant Partners said the cash scanners will help Dollarama even more over the next year or two as they help to further reduce labour costs.
"There doesn't seem to be any short-term limitation to how quickly they can grow through new stores. It’s a great story," he said in an email.
Dollarama is one of the few publicly traded Canadian retailers that is growing sales and profits by expanding its retail network and increasing its same-store sales.
Consequently, it is a likely candidate for future inclusion into the TSX Composite index, wrote Keith Howlett of Desjardins Securities.
He said it could be added as early as the market close on Dec. 17.
On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Dollarama shares were down 14 cents at $29.25 in afternoon trading Wednesday.
