Dollar Store Services

AUTHOR: madowner - (United States of America)

Hello,

I just wanted you to know that yes Dollar Store Services did put up a form letter responce.  If you look back at the claims from many years ago the form letter they put on looks a lot like the previous form letter.  They can not even come up with a new rebuttal.  I love the fact that 6 potential owners have called me and have backed away from opening a store.  I still warn people with a heavy heart.  DO NOT DO THIS!!!! You will be sorry!!!  Ask for references of stores open more than 5 years and see what they say.  It is a scam and I hope to protect you.  Call me if you would like.  I have nothing to hide at this point.  Three three zero 819 six zero three six

#2 UPDATE Employee

We provide the tools for each owner to be successful

AUTHOR: John Lafronz - (United States of America)

Any financial data that an owner utilizes in assessing their potential business or in seeking funding is reviewed by the owner, and submitted as part of their own loan applications.

Location of the store, adequate capitalization, and the dedication and management skills and abilities of an owner are some of the variables in determining the relative success of any store.  These key variables are all the responsibility of the owner, especially the decision as to store location.  We can advise, as we did in this case, but we cannot dictate that the owner select one location as opposed to another.

Our company provides independent-minded business owners with everything they need to enter the dollar store business. The stores we build are the finest you will find, and the merchandise assortment is second to none, with many categories not even found in typical dollar stores. 
 
Our turnkey store packages offer assistance in providing finance options, site location, and lease negotiation.  We provide all the equipment, fixtures and inventory to completely set up a dollar store, and of course all the labor and a professional buildout supervisor to direct the work.  We offer a minimum of 8 weeks of training, including the option of classroom training in our corporate offices. A merchandise representative is assigned to every store owner and works to support operations. Every store owner has full access to our supplier network and our newsletter which provides weekly updates on new merchandise from over 85 suppliers.  Every item offered to our stores is hand selected; then the price of each is negotiated.  Most suppliers offer freight concessions to our stores as well.
 
We have opened over 3000 stores since 1995 and there are thousands of stores in our wholesale network at this time any references can and will be provided.

While there cannot be a guarantee of success in any business endeavor, we believe that our program provides every store owner with the tools to be as successful as possible.  I welcome the opportunity to speak with any prospective store owner regarding our program and of course this posting. I can be reached at 1-800-829-2915 x134 and be sure to ask for references.

Sincerely,
John LaFronz
General Manager
