Made a space for a WIKI in case anyone has something they think would be good to keep there, so others can refer to info here. Also , for often asked info, can just refer them to the WIKI.

Feel free to post

Hope I did it right. Have no idea...

On the topic of Dollar Tree - I just realized all the small mom & pop dollar stores have slowly disappeared over the past 10-15 years. There used to be a dollar store in every strip mall back then, even in the big shopping malls and mostly run by immigrant families. Not sure if it's just in my area or they really have all disappeared. It seems like the dollar store industry has since been monopolized by Dollar Tree, with Dollar General, and Family Dollar a distant second and third. When a big box store or a mall chain store closes there's a ton of media coverage on it, but no one notices when these small mom & pop dollar stores are gone, as it *just* hit me when I read this thread (the Spring thread, rather).

I agree. I miss the old "Five and Dime" stores we had years back. Mc Crory's, Kresge's, Woolworth's, etc. All downtown. Later, came the larger stores like Bradlee's (my fave), Caldor and before that, Korvette's. Then came Kmart. Last one left, and on its last legs. That's a management problem. I miss K-mart. You could run there for things you needed 'now'. In lieu of Kmart, we have to go to Walmart, a bit further away.
Sad, but sign of the times.

Dollar Tree had humble roots but it's grown into a juggernaut. This link has the company's history back to its origins in 1953. They recently purchased Family Dollar. https://www.dollartree.com/history

I remember some of those little mom n pop discount stores. 2 Guys and EJ Korvettes were both great discount stores. K Mart many years ago used to have these Blue Light Specials. Bargain shopping used to be much more of an adventure.

Just a quick heads up to anyone who missed it and has an old car seat in the basement/attic - Walmart is giving $30 gift cards (limit two per person/household) for old car seats turned in at the CS desk. Confirmed in multiple places there's no requirement to buy a new one there. Booster seats are not included.

Do you think thrift stores sell them?
