Competition is heating up between America's biggest grocery chains, and food prices are falling as a result. Discount retailer Dollar General said Thursday that it's cutting prices on hundreds of items across 2,000 stores.
The strategy follows a similar path set forth by other chains such as Wal-Mart, Kroger and Trader Joe's. Cutting costs to get people in the door is a time-tested strategy, but it could mean slimmer margins for both grocery stores and suppliers.
As it turns out, that could be a risky move.
