In the past two years, Franklin Avenue in Crown Heights has gone from vacant storefronts, 99 cent stores
and Bodega grocers to a cutting edge food scene with Barboncino, Dutch Boy Burger, Blue Marble Ice Cream and Brooklyn born retailers, Owl & Thistle.
This order was awarded to the company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Green Hygienics Inc from 99 Cent Stores
, a discount retailer headquartered in Commerce, California.
Family Dollar and Dollar General sell products at a variety of price points, versus chains such as 99 Cent Stores
that focus on coming in at that dollar-or-under price point.
For the same reason that I like other closeout operations -- and better yet, 99 cent stores
-- I love walking through the doors of Odd Jobs and thinking that I can afford nearly every item in the store.
But stand-alone 99 cent stores
aren't the only single-price outlets going for the cold.
