2.5 litres is a U.S. size? Is 2.5 metres a U.S. length?

I dunno, it seems both the cans and the bottles were from the US.

Here is a California dollar store selling the products, as 2.5L bottles and 12oz. cans:

^Interesting concept, selling soda online. Because you know how difficult it can be to find pop.

It opens on the 12th. And let me tell ya, I like what I see going in there stock-wise. This may even be better than Fields. :lol


Sorry again for the late reply.... I just have to tell you my only purchase there...

One new year eve few years ago, I decided to quit smoking as my new year resolution, and I threw all asthrays. Well, it didn't last more than 3 or 4 days, so I was shopping for new asthrays, I found them and purchased 4 plastic made asthrays that came in very vibrant color. Bad idea, these ashtrays are fire hazads, when I put out cig. on these asthrays, they created bubble on plastic and eventaully poped alone with the cig. which wasn't totally out yet... I just thought it would be funny to mention it, and again what you pay is what you get....

I think the plastic should have been your first clue that they weren't a good idea for ashtrays, if in fact that was their intended purpose. Glad to hear no serious harm was done.

(this is how the black one that I was thinking off http://www.webstaura...tray-6-pack.jpg, execpt those from $1 store was in more vibrant color and does fireworks effect...lol.

No Shasta at all at the store today. But they had $1.00 Cott 2L soda-pop bottles, various flavours. I pay $1.59 for that at Wellburn's.

Gone suddenly are any name brand chocolate bars.  3 months ago, you could get a whole wide array, at $1 per.  They do have big size Glosettes, at $1.25, but that's it.

My work has some vending machines that sold $1 chocolate bars. I loved it until the guy that owned the machines had to abandon them due to illness. I missed them but now I buy them from Costco and resell them to my co-workers. I can hook you up.

Walmart still sells full size name brand bars for $1. Was tempted the other day for an Oh Henry, and was surprised at the price being from the 90s.

Are you a licensed vendor?  NParker will want to see your business license.

What I meant to say is that the bars are free but you are encouraged to make a one dollar donation to The Human Fund.

Man, these unlicensed places selling candy and goods in businesses needs to be regulated more closely.  I mean, are you even trained in how to properly sell or distribute a candy bar?

I think there is a specific thread on this somewhere, but life is too short to try and search for it....anyhow...

I walked past the former Staples at 747 Fort Street yesterday and noticed "For Lease" signs in the windows. I thought this space was going to become a new downtown dollar store. This is a nice piece of real estate that has been sitting empty for well over 2 years now. Any info?

Dollar Tree is closed Stop Work order due to Asbestos.

That entire building should have been condemned long ago.

 

Funny how the CoV can slap a closure order on some businesses but others that are breaking laws are allowed to go unfettered.
