If Wal-Mart is too rich for your blood. . . .

Dollar Tree Store
There's always Dollar Tree, coming soon to Rosemead.

Even their stock is a good buy!

maybe 99 would be better

99c Only is HQ'd in Commerce.

So the managerial and office jobs are local jobs. Dollar Tree is out of state.

The other jobs they create are basically minimum wage, and I imagine are pretty typical mw retail jobs.

This store is going to wipe out the mom and pop 99 stores. Those companies buy from warehouses along the Alameda Corridor.

I heard you can start a small store like that for around $50k.
