I never cared for Dollar General or Family Dollar. I could not understand why so many shopped there. Then I paid attention to where they were located and it made sense. Many of their products are a great deal higher priced and you don't get as much. However is is close to neighborhoods and they can walk to them. Dollar Tree on the other hand was just a dollar for their products. I tell ya, they have some really cute things for just a dollar. Place mats, hand towels, ornaments, cards, gum, candy! You can't beat it. I am not sure I would ever purchase meat from there but all that other stuff, yes I will and do.
