Back in my vending days besides LP's I pick up thousand's and thousand's of DVD's and CD's at various one dollar stores in the big Apple.I remember there was a great store near City Hall in New York, that for a year had fantastic dvd's and cd's for one buck. It was wonderful.
Not kidding at all. Anybody from New York can tell you that. Nearly every neighborhood has a one dollar store. everything is just one dollar. On a strip where I used to live in the big apple I bought hundreds of video's and Dvd's for a dollar. FAMILY DOLLAR IS NO BARGAIN.
I am well aware of Dollar Tree and dollar stores, Dollar Tree has stores across the US and Canada. Also " 99 Cent" stores are still in business.
However, Family Dollar has never pretended to be a store with retail prices limited to one dollar. NEVER. We sell many of the same brand name products you will find at any major grocery or retail chain, but also like those stores we also have a lower price point store brand.
I have never seen a customer come into the store to shop and say " oh dear...these prices are all over 1 dollar...I am being cheated...how dare you!" . The issue is NOT with the store but more with ill informed preconceptions by the customer.
I am NOT dishonest in my daily customer interactions and do NOT "play games with words" as claimed in your previous ignorant and insulting post.
On the bright side, I'm glad others are seeing some restock in their local FD stores.
I didn't say you were dishonest, where does the personal game begin here. I said there are common traits many people react to in life and that is a common trait many people have when seeing a store like FAMILY DOLLAR in there travels. Just one example. Say one is from QUEENS NEW YORK, and they have seen dozens upon dozens of one dollar store for decades in which they shopped often. They go on vacation and coming into a small town they see a store that says family Dollar. Need I say what might be there first reaction as they pull up into the parking lot and go in, Suddenly DAN THE MAN is ignorant and insulting? Now there are millions of people who live in the 5 boroughs of New York. So I am not coming from left field here. Of those millions very few would have not come in contact with some one dollar store scenario, even if they never went in them, They see it as part of their landscape. As for the dishonesty factor, right this second there are sadly but honestly a lot of business people trying to make a buck with words to entice people to buy there product and not with the greatest consideration, caring and honesty that some people I know including yours truly. I am glad that you feel you are one of the honest ones. let's not be so sensitive here.
