this dollar store is owned and operated by a very personable and local couple. if they don't have an item, they will get it if you ask. it is so nice to just drive down the road for some grocery item or milk than travel 3 times the distance to Bandera or even further to Boerne or San Antonio. prices are reasonable. if you would like to find real bargains or just shop a little, this store also satisfies that need. i like to support local merchants.
