You may be dubious about doing your toy shopping at Dollar General if you ever faced the frustration of buying a $3 toy at a dollar store only to find it destroyed within minutes and your child upset. But with inflation hanging around like the party's last guest with nowhere else to be, shoppers are poised to spend more on gifts this holiday season, leaving many to search for discounts and the best deals possible. In an attempt to assert itself as a go-to spot for toy shopping, Dollar General isn't merely offering popular brands for kids of all ages at lower prices, it's holding a massive sales event to boot.

On Nov. 3-5, the discount retailer is offering shoppers the chance to buy one toy (from a selection) and get another of equal or lesser value for 75% off. Dollar General customers can also take advantage of additional discounts through the store's app.
