Dollar stores.

I often shop at the Dollarama in Port Place Mall in Nanaimo.  I find it a handy stop for an inexpensive snack or any knickknacks I might need while downtown or heading over to Gabriola Island but they have all kinds of things for sale.

There are a lot of substance abusers, homeless, and poor people in the area and I see a lot of them in and around Dollarama and it made me think:  It’s a good store if you’re chronically broke.   It’s not usually the greatest deal for groceries on a per-pound basis but if you scrounge a few dollars you can buy something.  It’s retail shopping that fits with living moment to moment as many of these people do.
