Wants to attract wealthier customers.

Step 1: Change your name.
Step 2: Maybe make your stores NOT look like they balong in Bahgdad...in late 1990.
Step 3: Stop selling cheap shit.

This is a true story:
A Dollar General opened up on a busy street in Toledo about 1 year ago. They built the building from the ground up. It is between two major intersections separated by half a mile (I just measured it). At one of the intersections sat a Family Video, which is now being converted to a Dollar General. The newly built Dollar General sits 75% of that half mile away.

I hope a third location opens up between them.

Dollar stores help to keep minorities and the poor down.

This is very true. I watch minorities try to walk past them only to be forced inside at gunpoint to buy cheap shit and unhealthy food.

We sit between two towns about 5 minutes in each direction. One has about 2k people. Two gas stations (one with a wide array of gas station foods), two restaurants (one which is open only for breakfast and lunch), one grocery store and one dollar store. In the other direction there's a town of about 750 with two gas stations, one restaurant and opening soon... a dollar store.

Many of these little towns can't support a regular grocery store. If not for the Dollar Store. they'd have nothing at all. Cuts down on the number of trips to larger neighboring towns. And provides some competition to the once grocery store in the area to help contain prices.
