Dollar stores generally are seeing increased competition (from the likes of Walmart), rising costs, and worries about declining same store sales--a possible impact of the fiscal cliff.

They were hot stocks for a while, but the glory days seem to be waning. Can they pull another rabbit out of the hat? In my area, dollar stores are opening everywhere. They can't continue to grow with new stores.

Looks like the growth curve is destined to flatten.
