We have spent a lot of time discussing retailers in trouble. We all know the story, “brick and mortar” stores decimated by the juggernaut, layoffs, store closures, etc. But today, we focus on a retailer than some have called “Amazon-proof,” Five Below.

Five Below has thrived over the past few years despite the Amazon menace and the carnage elsewhere in the sector. They are on track to have 750 stores by the end of 2018, and despite their building frenzy and the increased locations, they show no signs of slowing down or cannibalizing their existing locations.

Key here is the very concept for Five Below, unique items that cost $5 or less. That in itself helps defend against Amazon since consumers are fairly reticent to order times online which are cheaper than the shipping costs levied to receive those items.

The store also focuses on toys and other items which appeal to kids and teens. In this sense they are well-positioned to fill the toy niche recently vacated by Toys R Us.
