Family Dollar reported last week that it plans to add more than 400 new food items to its grocery section and reduce prices on 1,000 other items as it seeks to increase store traffic and sales.

Family Dollar currently operates about 8,100 stores, and customers across the country (like myself) still think the following dollar store dialog is funny:

Customer: How much does this item cost?
Cashier: A dollar.
Customer: How about this item?
Cashier: A dollar.
Customer: Is this one a dollar?
Cashier: Yes.
Customer: How much is…
Cashier: A dollar!
