There's several dollar store options for Oklahomans to shop at, even in small towns! Most Oklahoma towns have a Dollar General, some also have a Family Dollar and a Dollar Tree. No matter where you are in the Sooner State, you can always find some kind of dollar store.

Most of these stores are usually shopped at for convenience or for certain items that are rather purchased at a discount, but recently, shoppers have been doing all of their shopping at dollar stores, including shopping for groceries, everyday household items and vitamins.

Due to this increased popularity, you can find thousands of videos on social media about people's "Dollar General hauls" or "how to shop on a budget at Dollar Tree."
