OLATHE, COLORADO -- As soon as you walk into the store the temp inside is very uncomfortable warm, actually hot! Then the one checker with one or two other employees being with each other. The 7 customers in line are hating life like me. The employees have all told me that the temp is controlled back at the main office. Which I'm sure is more desirable. I really can't stand this store. So I'm done with this so called store.
CLEVELAND, OHIO -- I go to Family Dollar on pearl and state almost every day. I spend at least a hundred dollars a week there. The manager ** is rude and couldn't care less if there are 10 people in line with 1 cashier. I won't be going there again.
I'm not sure if this is the place to leave this comment; but I wanted FD to know that the new Fabric Bandages manufactured in China are NOT any good. The previous ones manufactured in Egypt were of excellent quality and very satisfactory and every bit as good as the name brand!

CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA -- To those of us who are less fortunate with money these Dollar stores are a blessing. The products are mostly quality products at low cost. I shop here all the time for my cleaning supplies and monthly needs. I also buy thing here for my child because she is a dollar store junkie. She would rather go to the dollar store than to Wal-Mart. Everything is affordable for me to last me the entire month and I'm not ashamed to say I shop here. I love this store and buy almost everything there.
