Dollar stores vs name brand products
I love my Dollar Tree store. I get so many great things there - you can't tell the expensive stuff from the dollar stuff. One thing I've always wondered about -- is Name brand "knock-offs" .(I don't know what else to call them.)
Example -- I have to use "Sensodyne" toothpaste --- it's over $4 at the grocery store ... But "Sensitve" toothpaste at the dollar store is packaged in the same color box - the same style ~~ after trying it - you can't tell it from the real thing. Mouthwash ,too. "Antiseptic Mouth Wash " HAS to be Listerine. Dog chews -- the exact thing that's over $3 in a store - is a buck there. Are they the same product ? Do you know how "generic " works ? I'm dying to know how they can do this ! My DH always says "Same factory - different door" .
Do you know ?? ~~ Thanks in Advance ~~ !!
** PS - there are a few generic products that I dislike enough that I would pay for name brands - but not many.
