Do you ever shop at Family Dollar?
And our stores are not dirty and disgusting like others are mentioning. They are super clean, organized and have the nicest people working there. They know every one by name.
I live in a very small town too. We only have Family Dollar, Dollar General and 7-11. I shop at the dollar stores out of convenience. It doesn't make sense to waste the gas running to town 25 minutes each way. Any money saved at Walmart is eaten up in gas.
Sign o'the times. When we get poorer, more of these stores open up because their customer base increases.
we don't have one where I live, but there's one by our place in the poconos. my mom and I go there because they always have Boston baked beans (the candy). yummy
they have common brands that you see at CVS or the grocery store. not all of them, but some.
dollar tree yes, family dollar no
You can get small things there that are useful. Like aluminum foil! Costs about 3-5 bucks at walmart or wherever but costs a dollar for the same stuff at the dollar store. Little nicknacks and dishes, kids toys and other stuff.
I love dollar stores.
I had to, because our Walmart ran out of Christmas ornament hooks, so I had to go to Family Dollar for them.
The stuff they sell is Chinese made stuff that even the Chinese don't want. I shop for quality, not quantity.
I've shopped at these type places but not this particular one and not often.
I live in a small town and I have been to Family Dollar just because it is all we have. Dollar Tree is much nicer and cleaner and everything is only a dollar.
I've never heard of Family Dollar?
Dollar stores in general stress me out. To much disorganization. It's the same reason I also avoid stores like Ross and TJMaxx.
We have a new Family Dollar in our area. Clean & pleasant, helpful staff. No comparison to the Dollar General which is unorganized, filthy & rude.
Any kind of dollar store. I like going to dollar stores because of all the stuff you find there. I'm not ashamed to say that I like things that cost a dollar(or 5 dollars depending on which dollar store you go to)
Haven't been in any of these Dollar 'themed' stores. They obviously have a large consumer base, 'cuz they're springin' up like weeds. I reckon I could find something of use, but dubious of quality.
I used to -- before we moved. But now there isn't one close to where I shop.
Never been, although they have a good foursquare deal going.
Dollar general count?
Not here -- we have both and family dollar is much nicer
Disgusting store. Makes Wal-Mart look clean by comparison
Dollar general yes family dollar no. These stores are not the everything is a dollar store like dollar tree but rather a traditional dollar/cheap store. Handy when you run out of something and don't want to go to the bigger stores.
In Monongahela, we had a tiny Family Dollar store on the Main Street, but in around 1996 or 97, they moved to a bigger building across the street. Dollar General moved in to the old spot. So now, they have both in Mon City. On Main Street. It's quite sad.
Name brand deodorant, eye drops, toothpaste, etc.
great for Holloween. Reading glasses a dollar. Over $10 at Walgreen 's. Not a good place for snob to get caught though
I do go to Dollar Tree on occasion but for the most part I avoid it.
I only go to the Dollar Tree when my mom wants fancy chocolate.
Dollar tree, where everything is a dollar! Just as every dollar store should be!
Shop it when you're in Oregon and you won't pay sales tax. We went to San Francisco the dollar store became the $1.50 when we had to pay San Francisco sales-tax it was nearly the two dollar store
Once. It was a dump, never went back.
Occasionally, Dollar General is more often though.
Yes but ours is Dollar Tree.
Yes. Get great deals on every day items. Anyway I can to not go to white trash land a.k.a. Wal-Mart.
Especially for a dollar store. I'm in Seattle so driving 50 miles to a dollar store is a wee bit crazy
Thanks dnewdo. Not far from where I used to live near 12th and Pearl, but too far to be practical from out here partway up the mountain.
Bought all my wrapping paper and gift bags for Christmas there.
"Ever" ... As in maybe once per year.
I don't know what that is
We don't have them here but I do shop Dollar tree
Never heard of it.
Family Dollar no, Dollar General every now and then.
Obama > Bush
Who used foul language? If they were talking about Bush you'd probably be fine.
There's one in Fircrest
If there's one around here I don't know where.
