Went to Family Dollar to purchase items that went on sale starting yesterday, but they were already sold out today. This is at least the fifth time this has happened to me, even when I go the day the sale starts. They are always polite and helpful, but we REALLY need a Walmart or anything to fulfill our needs. Guess I'll just call first before wasting my gas and time.

I know what you mean....I really hate going in that store though. It's always busy and rarely do they have more than one register open. The aisles are loaded up with stock and it's hard to move around.

You can thank the Crowell family for the lack of development in RC.

What specifically have the Crowells done to keep developement out of Royse City.

If your going to call someone out, please give us the facts about your statement.

I dont know if they have or have not, but so many people post things on here off of hearsay and not facts, that I'm curious to know.

Went to family dollar, over 50% of the aisles were blocked with items to be stocked. I understand they re-stock while they work, but blocking off aisles completely is stupid! They were bringing even more carts out before unloading the ones that were already there! I do not understand this mentality. I simply didn't purchase items because I was unable to get to them. Really nice folks, but must have an idiot manager/owner. Come on Walmart or any other store!!!!

I agree, and honestly I wonder if this stocking procedure violates any sort of safety codes. I'm grateful we have the store, but we need more than just Family Dollar!!

Excellent point, is it a safety violation? Fire hazard? Very interesting.
yeah

The blocking isles is a violation for the fire dept. if there was a fire in that store and people got hurt it would be all of the stores fault. They have so many carts blocking the isles its insane. I really don't see how the store has not gotten in trouble for their procedures. And how is it that they have all these carts blocking the isles but never have what I actually need?! I will agree that the employees are very friendly and they drop everything to help you as soon as you ask. But this stocking and blocking isle thing has got to stop. And has anyone noticed how much they have gone up on their prices?! I might save some money by going to Rockwall or Greenville... just sayin.

Glad to report the blocking off of the aisles has greatly improved! Maybe our comments made a difference.

Unfortunately back to the same thing! All the back aisles were blocked off with carts. Why can't they unload one cart at a time? Not only is this unsafe, but if you can't get to the items, you can't buy them!!!

Have you thought about calling the FD?

Some stores have almost no stock rooms at all for back stock. They have to completely unload the waiting delivery truck into the store. The truckdriver is not waiting around for them to stock the shelves too, before he leaves with his truck.

What a joke! Grand re- opening was nice. More organized with longer aisles.
Today, every single aisle blocked with carts. People were tripping over each other. Now the entire longer aisles are blocked. Who manages this place? Other family dollar stores are not this inadequate. Come on Walmart! Teach these people a lesson. I can't stand obstacle shopping. Yes, done doing any business there.

One question for code enforcement if we actually have that not really sure but if the aisles are blocked would that not be a fire hazard? Being a robust man ( nice way of saying lard ass) sometimes I have to slap the crisco on my hips just to slide through and lord knows I needs to get in that candy aisle. yum
