But that's not always the case, as one Reddit user revealed in a hilarious post over the weekend.
The Redditor – who goes by the name Schroderrr – shared a mind-bending photo of a 99 cent store yesterday, presumably in the US.
On the shop's front, the name "99¢ Power" can be seen in huge lit-up letters.
But there's a catch – underneath this are the words: "Every item 99¢ and up or less."
As Schroderrr pointed out, this basically means that goods can be any price. Right.
Unsurprisingly, the snap sparked quite a reaction among other Reddit users.
One joked: "All items guaranteed to have a price," while another moaned: "This hurts my brain."
Others shared stories of similar retailers where they live.
These included: "There's a store by my work that is called Mattress Sale. There is no sale whatsoever. Its just called Mattress Sale," and: "There's a store in my neighbourhood called 79 cent, 89 cent, 99 cent and more."
Another person wrote: "Even worse… I went to a store today. Big sales. On every clothing rack, you had a sign: 'SALE 4.99 or more!'
"So basically you can have a $20,000 overpriced T-shirt in there and it would still be true."
The mind boggles.
Meanwhile, Pret a Manger's job advert featured a very awkward spelling error.
B&M made a huge mistake when they named this £29.99 mirror… can you see why?
And this mum shared an epic fail Aldi made in their bath time toys – but can you spot what's wrong?
