We have a fine example of Dollarama tactics here in Summerland.
Our good, helpful Dollar Store has been serving our needs well for several years. Along comes Dollarama.
They choose to establish themselves – next door to the Dollar Store the former bowling alley.
Is this to help Summerland shoppers?
Mighty, well-funded Dollarama is now doing this same tactic up and down the Okanagan – in fact, all across Canada.
Their aim is, of course, to kill competition.
When there is no competition shoppers are at the mercy of the monopoly.
Seldom is this good news for customers.
Let’s keep our own dollar store healthy by shopping there.
