I do and there are more people than you think. there is almost never a line and they are convenient to most neighborhoods. Better than walmart where you get stuck in line for 15 minutes or more because of only one or two cashiers. Even walmart has seen how handy the smaller neighborhood stores and are downsizing in a lot of locations.

I would rather have Dollar General stock than WalMart with this economy. I predict DG will experience larger gains than WMT.

Dollar General rocks. They are in convenient locations, parking lots that aren't a mile long and competitive prices. I can grab milk, cereal, shampoo and toilet paper and be in an out in the time it would take me to find a parking space at Wal-Mart or Target.

once again - because they are neighborhood stores so people would not have to drive across town to get one or two items.

a quick count so I might have missed one or two but there are 5 mcdonalds and 6 sonics. so why are people complaining about 4 more dollars stores??? what is wrong with building one within walking distance? The square feet of 4 more dollar stores most likely will still not add up to what the two walmarts has.

for the fun of it does anyone knows how many oriental or mexican restaurants jonesboro has?

Haha, isn't that the truth! You'd think it would break their face to smile.
