It's good to see an empty storefront occupied. But, heed Dollar General's new store manager, when he tells people 'not [to] think of the store as a dollar store'. It's NOT a dollar store, shoppers will find that most items are well over a dollar.

This is the beginning of the end of West Brat Snob Zone. Next a Walmart and a strip joint. Won't be long they will call it West Elliot St. or Harmytwo

This is what should happen - existing space should be used up before any more sprawl is built. The system worked. It's out of my way but I'll stop in at the new Dollar General.

Hopefully, it will keep some shoppers on this side of the river. Revenues we could surely use in Bratt.

Unless they have the anti-customer employees that seem to flock to bratt stores...there's a customer in need of assistance...Run!!! Hide!!! Ignore them!!! Turn your back on them!!! Break time, time to stand out in front of the store smoking and complaining about my hours...while yelling at my kids/significant other/bill collector on my cellphone.

I've been in the area for 10 years now and that space has been empty since before then.

I agree that existing empty space should be used when it's available.

And flatlander, so nice to hear you babble again about things you know nothing about because you are from, where is it, Iowa or something.

This is good. Vermonters need to be reminded of how close-minded they can be while proclaiming to be just the opposite.

I'm glad that Dollar General got in somehow and beat the hippies.

Why don't you just wait and give it a try before imputing the actions of employees of other companies to this one?
