It’s Worth More

012216

This place is just across the street from a Family Dollar or a Dollar General or one of those places that have popped up everywhere; its days are likely numbered, but that may not make them worth more than any other sort of day.

  2. Wow, I love this photo. it silently says so much. And those chain dollar stores are kind of annoying – they pop up like zits in the weirdest places. Seems the day of the mom-n-pop business has almost passed away. Sadness. These people are what made this country what it is today yet this is the result. Is this a negative thought or the bare bones truth…

    • I’m not sure when it happened that every single little town has a Dollar General or Family Dollar (maybe I’ll just call them, collectively, Family General), but they are just everywhere. With the predicable consequences for the locally-owned little stores.

      I guess they bring jobs to these little towns, but at what cost?

    • I know what you mean! I tend to be a bit of a cranky grammarian (which is probably redundant), so that business’s name bothered me a little bit.

      But, even a grammarian can tell that it made for a more interesting photo than if the business name had, oh, I don’t know, made sense.

  5. If the throng of cars parked in front is any indication, this business will soon be as done and gone as it already looks.

    Wait a minute, you said a car actually passed by while you were there? Maybe there is hope.
