We've all been to dollar stores, and while they do have some decent deals on picture frames, greeting cards, and party supplies, their food deals aren’t usually that great. The quality can be a bit spotty, and who really wants to pay a full dollar for an old can of corn?
Then there's the other side of the scale. You go into stores like Trader Joe's and Whole Foods and buy exactly what you want, but then have buyer's remorse after you realize you’ve just spent $13 on organic almond butter.
Well, here’s some good news, people. There’s a store that’s trying to bridge the gap between 99-cent stores and Whole Foods. This new San Francisco-based online retailer, Brandless, sells everything on their site for the bargain price of $3.
🇺🇸 Everything for $3. "Better everything for everyone" is the slogan of @brandlesslife , a new online store that offers nearly 200 products all for $3. The online store received good reviews, such as those from @glamourmag e @marieclairemag Looking forward to receive our first purchase! 👏🏻😊 #BrandlessBox #brandlesslife 🇧🇷Tudo por $3. "Tudo de melhor para todos" é o slogan da @brandlesslife , que desde a semana passada oferece aproximadamente 200 produtos pelo valor de $3. A empresa vem recebendo ótimas críticas, como da @glamourmag e @marieclairemag !Ja fizemos nossa primeira compra! 👏🏻😊#BrandlessBox #brandlesslife #nongmo #betterthings #bettereverything #betterstuff #fewerdollars #feedingamerica
Brandless offers up tasty snacks, like sea salt quinoa chips and organic vanilla cocoa granola, as well as organic fair-trade coffee, all for just $3, which is way cheaper than what you would pay at a regular store.
The online store also sells household and beauty products, like summer breeze-scented multi-surface cleaner and gel hand soup that has eucalyptus and lavender fragrances, which at $3 is a total steal.
Wondering how Brandless can get away with that? According to the co-founders, the company is able to sell all of its products for a discounted price because it avoids the “brand tax” since none of the items are actual brand names.
It is also able to spend less money on distribution, shelf space, and product packaging since products are sold exclusively online and nowhere else. This way, both the company and the consumers save money.
Sounds like a win-win situation.
While Brandless products will never be on the shelves in any other store, maybe one day the company will have its own store like Amazon does. For now, though, you can browse and buy all the $3 products that Brandless.com has to offer..
