Dollar stores are this generation's five and dimes. Who knows? A nickel or dime in Edwardian times is said to be worth just over a dollar in today's money when adjusted for inflation and the GDP. This ain't The Wall Street Journal, so I won't bore you with that!
Dollar Tree are the Walmart of dollar stores in the States. Almost every market has at least one. Family Dollar and Dollar General aren't dollar stores per se. They're more in league with Woolworth USA and McCrory from the days of yore, but not quite as legendary!
All for a Dollar and Everything's $1.00, my first dollar stores, as well as Owego-based Dollar Depot and Dollar Bazaar closed years ago.
I'm trying to get Yankee One Dollar and/or Just a Buck into these locations:
Shoppingtown Mall, DeWitt
Great Northern Mall, Clay
Fingerlakes Mall, Auburn
Fairmount Fair, Syracuse
Northern Lights Plaza, North Syracuse
Homer Ave., Cortland
Hyde Park Mall
Former CVS, Delmar
Former Coconut's in Stuyvesant Plaza, Albany
Colonie Center, Albany
Commercial Drive, New Hartford
Former Rite Aid, Baldwinsville
Waterloo Premium Outlets, Junius
Former Smith's, Brewerton
Former Smith's Plaza, Cicero
Former Eckerd, Westvale
Former ShopRite, Poughkeepsie
Former Hackett's or Grand Union, Hamilton
Former Caldor, Flushing
I'm open to suggestions.
When I have the money, I could open a JAB franchise, as they have that option. YOD don't even have a website.
