The Dollar Store Backlash Has Begun

The U.S. has added 10,000 of these budget retail outlets since 2001. But some towns and cities are trying to push back


It has become an increasingly common story: A dollar store opens up in an economically depressed area with scarce healthy and affordable food options, sometimes with the help of local tax incentives. It advertises hard-to-beat low prices but it offers little in terms of fresh produce and nutritious items—further trapping residents in a cycle of poverty and ill-health...

As dollar stores move into cities, residents see a steep downside


TULSA — Vanessa Hall-Harper, a lifelong resident of this city’s poorest area, has viewed the opening of dollar stores in recent years with trepidation. The stores were a reminder of the blight, she said, and they blocked grocers and others from opening; so when she was elected to the City Council, she fought back, ushering in restrictions on new stores...

NYC has none of these franchises ! the Dominican community, gets together , and creates their own mom and pop dollar stores, and the Bangladeshis and Sudanese do the same!
Unlike those franchises in th south , where you cant get toilet paper, batteries, light bulbs , that last more then a week, and cant even buy a doggone tea kettle, or a knife that can fillet a chicken, these stores are well stocked and up to date!
I have heard too many stories about both Dollar Tree and Family Dollar, running out of supply and being back ordered on basics as folks go into stores and see empty shelves and boxes piled to the cieling with no one to correct or stack the inventory!

In over 30 years I have never seen that occur in Brooklyn!

Maybe we as a community of people who now have over 37 millionaires under 40, 2019, and spent 1.2 trillion , just year before last
should fund our own dollar shops, so we can service our communities as well as create some new self employment! http://fortune.com/2018/02/28/raceahead-nielsen-report-black-buying-power/

Why Dollar Tree should be ashamed of itself



The centerpiece of the plan is a deeper integration of the bumbling Family Dollar brand (and its 8,200-plus stores) into Dollar Tree.
Some actions Dollar Tree said it’s taking to improve performance include:

The Dollar Store Backlash Has Begun
The U.S. has added 10,000 of these budget retail outlets since 2001. But some towns and cities are trying to push back


In fact, the number of dollar-store outlets nationwide exceeds that of Walmart and McDonalds put together—and they’re still growing at a breakneck pace. That, ILSR says, is bad news...
