Dollar Store Poor Quality Products

Consumer Reports and other consumer watchdogs warn that some dollar store items are of notoriously poor quality, including off-brand vitamins that do not contain what is listed on the package, and batteries where the fine print says they should only be used for “low-drain devices.”
While low quality is often less important for single-use items like paper napkins or birthday cards, quality does indeed matter for items that we expect to last and use repeatedly such as tools, kitchen utensils, knives, cookware, batteries, toys, and electronics.
