Say what??? I don't see Family Dollar Store or Dollar General as being in the same competition. Sam's Club is more about groceries what few times I have been inside. This is a major economic event IMO.

Have you ever been in a FD or DG? You can get fat as a pig from all the groceries there. Around here just about every little small town has one and when you go by, the parking lot is full. IMO Walmart/Sams club stores have went too big in a lot of places and the small town stores are coming back. Big shopping malls are about like ghost towns except for the walkers and about two weeks before Christmas traffic.

Agree. My point is in the grocery department that are not comparable to General Dollar or Family Dollar. Our General Dollar is good for bread, milk, etc but they have no meat, eggs, etc.

Are your Dollar stores as filthy and unorganized as the ones in Warsaw?

Yes they are. The clerks look like they just fell out of bed. Sorry, I am sure there are some that don't fit that stereotype. My apologies if anyone here works for them.

Larry,

How do you decide whether you are going to post as TT or HSTexas?

i took off yesterday and noticed they are building a dollar general in the middle of nowhere on a highway. I wouldn't think that'd be a good spot but who knows. .it'll be packed.

in KY those stores are always busy as thats the only spot most people can go within a 30 min. drive.

You are correct. If I need something common, it is 3 miles to Dollar General. Otherwise, it is 18 miles to Maysville.

I believe I read somewhere that internet shopping outlets such as Amazon are really hurting Sam's and Wal-Mart. Ever increasing number of web shoppers. Becomes expensive maintaining an actual storefront vs. just a warehouse. Looks like Amazon is doing Sam's the same way Sam did all those mom and pop places across the nation. Classic example of how if you do not have your finger on the pulse of the consumer in today's climate, you can go from the top of the pile to fading into irrelevance rather quickly...it is proposed that the vast majority of us will order virtually everything via the web over the next decade, including our groceries. One of the reasons a career in logistics is considered highly promising. I mean groceries delivered to your door, not like Kroger does now where you can send them your list, then go pick up your grocery order already bagged and waiting.

Down here it seems like there is a Dollar General just about everywehre there is a highway intersection and a Family Dollar across the street. But they draw from a lot of countryside that doesn't have any kind of store for miles and miles so I guess they sell enough to keep the doors open.
