As a citizen of Summerland for several years, I was stunned to find out about the proposal to put a Dollarama in this town.
I only heard about this a couple of months ago so I must have had my head buried in the sand or it wasn’t such a big deal to announce this very loudly.
Some of us don’t understand the need for a big box store period, but to have it on the same block as our Dollar Store? Allan Carter and staff have served us just fine over the years and will continue to be my place to shop.
Greed has now become a breeding ground for more of this behaviour by larger corporations and our city let this happen.
Continue to support our local community by shopping in their stores. As Joni Mitchell sang, “put up a parking lot.” You can plop a big box store on top of it too if you want.
