Looking to try the best discount stores in town?

Hoodline crunched the numbers to find the best affordable discount stores in Jacksonville, using both Yelp data and our own secret sauce to produce a ranked list of where to meet your needs.

Topping the list is Solomon Ventures. Located at 1650 Art Museum Drive, the discount store is the highest-rated inexpensive discount store in Jacksonville, boasting 4.5 stars out of 24 reviews on Yelp.  

Yelper Jo A. wrote, "This is a jewel worth checking out on a regular basis. I have found good wines - some name brand - for only $5.99. Shampoos, food goods, chips, coffee, brand name teas, sometimes Azar sausages, great fresh pita bread delivered daily, lamps, school supplies, t-shirts and great canvas carry-all bags for $5."  

Yelper Vanessa T. added, "This place is great to find random 'treasures.' It's a discount store, so they get things that didn't sell from other places or maybe overstocked items! A lot of high end organic and fancy foods, which I love searching thru and seeing what I will find."

2. Five Below

Next up is Five Below, situated at 6001 Argyle Forest Blvd. It's an outpost of the national chain. With 4.5 stars out of 14 reviews on Yelp, the discount store has proven to be a local favorite for those looking for a cheap option.  

Yelper Karena R. noted, "It's like a Family Dollar or Dollar General, but a little better in my opinion. This store has everything under the sun. How'd I miss this? I went in to purchase a cell phone screen protector and in the process picked up a few more items."

Yelper Linda V. wrote, "It is an inexpensive store, $5 or less, but they do have lots of interesting stuff! I came for a $3 ball and left with $40 worth of stuff. They have candy, cosmetics, clothes, shoes, toys, drawing/coloring things, exercise things and on and on!"

3. Ollie's Bargain Outlet

Greater Arlington's outpost of the well-known chain Ollie's Bargain Outlet, located at 9400 Atlantic Blvd., Suite #101, is another top choice, with Yelpers giving the affordable discount store four stars out of 20 reviews. 

Yelper Jennifer V. noted, "There is something for everyone, and it is one of those places that you have to visit frequently because it changes all the time. I don't think we have ever left an Ollie's empty-handed. We will continue to shop at Ollie's for all of the random things!"

Yelper Ashlea W. added, "They have some of the most insane deals on practically everything you can think of buying...food, books, toys, personal care, outdoor sports, kitchen, rugs, and even clothing and furniture."
