They are like hangers. They multiply when you're not looking. I can't imagine their big semi's on those narrow roads.
In Bulhead City there were so many there, in close proximity to each other. Now they are all boarded up.
Is this what the people want for their community?

    I'd rather see a restaurant of some kind, or one of those combination micro fast food outlets..
    Our local kids could use some starter jobs and the convince would be nice.
    Especially considering there's 2 Dollar stores within 15 minutes already...

      I think there are many people (including me) who aren't really able to easily cross the canyon and have limited resourses for gas, so the Dollar General would be a God-send.
      I think it woukd be wonderful to have a place handy for toiletries, medicines and the like.
      And please b e realistic about there being several. It just wouldnt happen. And west point coukd really use some new life, IMHO.
      I believe it would be a blessing for many, and I, for one, will be terribly disappointed if it falls through.

Dollar Store

Dollar Stores are not a good neighbor in our communities. The profits do not stay here, the intent is to displace the small local stores, the increased truck traffic will be a hazard on our small highway.
I have found that their pricing is deceptive and their products mostly cheaply made imports.

    I am looking forward to a better quality store in our area than the two very poorly run stores in the town of West Point. Bring it on, and watch it grow.

      Will it be a specialty $ store catering to those above board cannabis growers?

        As a person on a fixed income I would welcome Dollar General. Paying double for everything is really a hardship for me. The trucks are coming here already.

          Dollar General will NOT save you any money. They lure you in with sale prices and then rip you off once inside. Their cheap stuff is pure junk. They are not Dollar Stores...

You are all idiots.... All the Hindus do is take advantage and send your money to another country.... I heard Rick tell a guy. It's not about what they want... It's about what they need so I can charge what I want...
