"99 Cents Only"? NOT!

  1. That's too bad. But I don't blame them. As long as the prices on what I buy are less than other places I can get them at, I'll still go there. I'd rather be able to get what I need. I noticed the last couple of times I went there haven't been any bananas and it ticks me off because then I have to stop somewhere else.

    1. The Texas stores have never had the food selection that it sounds like other stores have. Still, in the last couple of months the one near me in Houston has all but stopped selling produce and refrigerated foods, and there are empty shelves and aisles in the rest of the store as well. I wondered in this economy how long they could sustain their business model, and it looks like now's the breaking point.
