ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Money is tight these days, so more people are taking their dollar to the dollar store.

The economic downturn is sending a lot more folks to bargain retailers like Dollar Tree.

The store is the largest and most successful single-price retailer in the country, and they're seeing more foot traffic, it shows in their bottom line.

Net sales for the third quarter was more than a billion dollars, up more than 12 percent over 2008.

The Company continues to grow.

Late last year Dollar Tree opened 94 new stores and expanded or relocated 33 others. That was more than a seven percent increase in a one year period.
