It must be where everything is truly a dollar, and not even below.  Like a stick of gum or pencil.

Here's a pic of the Ames in Tilton NH.  The entire store is now a Dollar Tree.  It was a small store of about 32,000 sq.-ft.

The 1/3 of the Ames in Bangor ME became Dollar Tree too!

The closest Dollar Tree for me is Wethersfield, and Bristol CT. We went to the Bristol store and I really like that store. Every item is $1 or less! They are a true dollar store! I'm trying to push for one in Newington!!lol

There'a Dollar Tree in part of the old Caldor in Kingston, New York. The remaining portion is a Burlington Coat Factory.

I know its not Dollar Tree but its the Dollar Store


THE DOLLAR STORE HAS THE MOST CHEAPEST LOOKING SHOPPING CARTS I'VE EVER SEEN!

they are red. small and it basically have bars that are small with no logo on the side or front whatsoever

I mean they look almost like toys!:o


this is not a ** thread


This is a question

Why would a store pursue to have shopping carts that are cheap looking and possible reasons for demoralizing and downsizing the quality of the companies image?

Both Family Dollar and Dollar General have "DOLLAR" in their name, but most of their stuff is over a dollar...so what Dollar Tree did with the "Everything's a Dollar" slogan wasn't that dumb.

I know what you're saying MBZ321 IT DOES MAKE SENSE!

I'm just saying that having a slogan saying "Everything's $1.00" is unheard of to me in me knowing dollar stores because usually they don't obviously say that everything costs a dollar because people already expect everything in their stores to cost a dollar.

SO THATS THE FIRST TIME I'VE EVER SEEN A DOLLAR STORE ACTUALLY SAY EVERYTHING COSTS A $1.00

HOWEVER FROM WHAT YOU'RE SAYING MBZ321 IS THAT DOLLAR TREE IS ACTUALLY A TRUE DOLLAR STORE WHERE EVERYTHING COSTS A DOLLAR OR LESS!

so for once there is a true $1.00 store out there!

and they're not using it as a hoodwinking getup like Family Dollar with their cheap looking carts due

IN COMPARISON

DOLLAR TREE VS. Family Dollar

Dollar Tree-sells everything at a dollar or less

Family Dollar-uses dollar name as a cover for actual costs which are much as around possibly five dollars!

Dollar Tree-green professional looking shopping carts

Family Dollar-red thin bar small cheap looking shopping carts

WHOs THE BETTER OF THE TWO? YOU DECIDE!:bigsmile:

I like my local Dollar Trees because they are using old Clover carts!:o (the stores were part of another dollar store chain which Dollar Tree bought)

I live 5 min from the old Ames store...its sad seein the last part of it go. What's weird is that 10% of the old store still remains inbetween Dollar Tree and Bed Bath and Beyond. Don't know what will go in that slot.  I'll take a picture with my phone tomorrow on the way to class and post it now that I got a little free time

Family Dollar is one of the fastest growing Fortune 500 companies of 2004.  They, on average, are opening more new stores than any other retailer in the country, that includes Wal-Mart.  Just thought that was an interesting fact I picked up from the Wall Street Journal.

We're plagued with dollar stores: Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Silver Dollar, and so many more!

In Laconia we have a Family Dollar and in Tilton is the Dollar Tree. Well the Family Dollar Store, things are cheap but not all a dollar, the Dollar Tree evey thing is a $1 or under.  I like both.  Along with Big lots. Don't like shopping at W------ if I can help it. Like Target to.

Here's the Dollar tree in the Delaware plaza - this store (including the GNC space, I believe) was a Brooks, which then became Revco and then CVS (who closed it since they have a store about 1/2 mi down the road).

This is the Bennington (VT) store - it is next to Home Depot, and in the space that used to be a movie theater when the plaza was Ames/Price Chopper.

Dollar Tree is in expansion mode in Northern New England.  Not too long ago, they had no stores at all in Maine.  Now they are in most major city and more are slated to open soon.

The first store is the Cobleskill store (in with the Super WalMart on Route 7).  

The second is the Oneonta location, on Route 28, near the Hannaford (for some reason, Hannaford sits by itself and the rest of the stores are in a separate strip).
