Very good article and a reality check on the big brands. Dollar stores on indeed be coming very strong retail Force. I am tremendously excited with the boom, especially cos these are my target customers.

The customer clearly wants value. However I have yet to see a dollar store and gives value a good quality to the customer. Dollar stores will need to evolve over time and give the customers the experience of pleasure of shopping. Many dollar stores even the big chains feel and look gloomy. Makes me wonder if they have to look like that?

There is room for a good dollarstore that can give a friendly experience to the customer. And most importantly a consistent experience consistent quality. Consistency seems to be missing in most dollar stores at the moment. They have to evolve. I think they will gradually.

Richard can you guide to get the list of 30000 dollar store. There's a lot of business to be done.

working on model to compete dollar stores.I see some very good data with independents as their debit to equity ratios are very small compared to mammoth.
have one or two major creditors that can impact during interest hike. only system they lack is simple, believe me it is simple, if right thought process , it is called pooling and buying direct from manufacturer.
including cost of operations is significantly lower compared to chains. any help on this open project will be appreciated.
