SUPPLY—At the Dollar General store near Holden Beach just a few days before Christmas, Eloise Wright looks for bargain-priced toys for her grandchildren’s presents.
She also plans to visit the food section to get enough dry goods to make their favorite cookies, still with her eye on saving money.
“They’ve got 25 percent off on a lot of toys right now,” Wright said, scanning the aisle.
“Things are tighter right now. I really need to be more frugal.”
