Save big money on essentials at Jack's 99 Cent Store locations in New York City. Jack's 99 Cent Store sells everything from groceries to clothing to office supplies to housewares.

You can still buy many Jack's 99 Cent Store items for the advertised 99 cents. Other prices are slightly higher but still ridiculously cheap.

What to Expect at Jack's 99 Cent Stores

At Jack's, you'll find discounted brand-name products (Boca, Kashi, Sun-Maid, and many more) next to cheaper off-brand alternatives (like Mrs. Freshley's Cookies instead of Little Debbie's).

Jack's World is the company's slightly higher-priced sister store. At Jack's World, you'll find marked-down brand-name clothing (sometimes slightly irregular and sometimes just fine) and houseware items. During a recent visit, we snagged dirt-cheap goodies from Champion, Jockey, and Trader Joe's. Of course, stock varies, so you never know exactly what you're going to find.

If your budget's a little tighter these days, you can save money on your staple items by shopping at Jack's 99 Cent Store. Jack's isn't posh, but the stores are clean and well-stocked and the check-out lines move fairly quickly.
