I think that Honks Dollar is the best local dollar store. I can always find good things at this store. There is a large food food section, as well as any other section you might be looking for. My favorite thing to buy there is medicine. Who can beat paying $1 for medicine. I don't like having to pay $5-10 for a bottle of cough medicine at the grocery store. Honks always has cough medicine for $1.
