Greenback Gone

Dollar store closes.

by Sally Mitani

From the May, 2014 issue

Lee Hanna said he would close his Greenback Dollar store in mid-April, but by the end of March most shelves were bare. Malcolm Gin was in buying some of the light fixtures for his family's Happy Wok down the road (Gin had been reluctant to give his name, but Hanna insisted: "Go ahead! It's great advertising!") Hanna had to move last year to make room for GFS and hoped that his old customers would find his new location. They didn't. "Just last week someone called and said she had just found out we had moved. I told her she better get here quick. I've been blessed with twelve years of owning my own store, but now I'm going to have to use my managerial skills to look for a job. I can't afford to open a new store."    (end of article)
