We at Falling Prices share everyone's concern over the spread of COVID 19, and we remain committed to doing our part to help slow its spread while still making available to as many as possible the items we all need in our homes. Sacramento county, and the State of California, have issued "stay at home" orders, and we have carefully reviewed those orders to ensure we follow all guidelines within them for reducing transmission of this disease.
County officials have stated that the intent of the order is not to cite or arrest anyone, but to have the ability to require bars to close and restaurants to only serve take-out and delivery food. They further stated that the order allows people to leave their house for exercise and to go to open businesses such as grocery stores, banks, laundromats, hardware stores, health care facilities, pharmacies, pet food stores and other businesses that provide items essential to basic household functioning. The order allows for stores to limit the number of people inside the store to ensure that six feet of space can remain between people shopping and checking out. The state order calls for the closure of bars, gyms, movie theaters and dine in restaurants, and allows for gatherings of up to 250 people while requesting social limiting at all times.
Both "stay at home" orders call for retail operations such as ours, stores selling items essential to basic household functioning, to remain open. We will comply with those orders and keep our stores open, but we will be dramatically limiting the number of customers allowed in the store at one time. The number of people in the store will be monitored to ensure that they can keep six feet of space between themselves at all times. We will focus on stocking our stores, as much as is possible, with items that all of us need, such as personal care items, household items, food, pet food and items needed in order to be able to work from home. Our goal is to make as many of these items as possible available to as many as we can.
We understand that this may mean longer than usual wait times to get into one of our stores. We ask for your patience and understanding. Please use the FallingPrices application to secure your place in line, don't line up until immediately before store opening and keep the required distance between you and the next person in line. We will continue to clean our stores regularly and often throughout each day, and ask that you continue to wash your hands often and avoid actions such as shaking hands, hugging, patting people on the back or shoulder or touching your own face. If you are a member of a group that is particularly susceptible to this disease, or if you are experiencing cold or flu like symptoms, please stay home. Together we can continue to have access to the items we all need in our houses and slow the transmission of COVID-19.

Falling Prices (General) is a new concept in discount retail where prices in the store fall each day until everything sells. Each Tuesday the store opens with new inventory and by the end of the day Saturday it will all be gone. New product is then brought in and the process starts all over again, you never really know what you will find at Falling Prices.
The Evolution Of Discount Retail
Traditionally, retail stores have priced items at prices they felt were fair for their customers to pay and still feel that they got a bargain, while making it an overall fun shopping experience. We re-invented the traditional retail model by instead of focusing on experience, we focus on providing our customers with the best value possible. Our goal is to move inventory as fast as possible, so our prices continue to drop until it is all gone.
Falling Prices - Basic
Falling Prices Basic is a new model for retail stores where the prices of the items fall every single day.
