Waiting at the Dollar Store


It appeared to me that this gentleman was waiting for someone - spouse? or friend? - at the Dollar Store. He probably waited a long time. Some people love these "Dollar" stores where everything is supposed to cost $1.00.

Hah, everything doesn't cost one dollar. Many things cost more than one dollar. Some things cost multiple dollars.

I asked a clerk about this. She said:

 Too bad for you
But you can can scream
 And you can holler
If you dare.
We'll still sell at any price
One dollar maybe
Or maybe more.
Truthfully, we just don'e care.

Funny! It looks like summer! Snow in the forecast here!

Wow. This place looks almost upscale. And it's certainly colorful.
There's probably small print somewhere: "Prices adjusted hourly for inflation."

Hope he wasn't waiting for a Black Friday deal.

At 100-yen shop in my part of the world, almost all are sold at 100 yen, even the things we can buy less than 100 yen elsewhere.

The Dollar Store is useful sometimes. But mostly it's filled with stuff you don't need, or want!

That has to be the nicest looking dollar store I've ever seen.

Dollar stores are pretty much the same here. I'm always amazed when I see people leave them with bags full of stuff!

The Dollar store looks like it is made of one of my favorite cheeses, and I like also the bench!

He has no patience for the dollar store and said he would "wait out here".

When young, my grandson LOVED the dollar stores.

It looks a bit too upscale for a dollar store!

I am still drawn to dollar stores like the proverbial moth to a flame. I think most have posted somewhere 'Most items are $1.00". But hey, it's still fun.

We have dollar stores popping up everywhere but I've never seen one quite like this.
