Just wanted to set the record straight on some feedback concerning my “Told You So” sidebar and April review (why are people still focused on April?):
If you read my review from start to finish, you would realize that I am not denouncing the dollar store genre. I think that like in any type of store, there are some great deals and some bad deals that the average consumer can find. To summarize:
-In my books, when you pay a dollar and get a product that’s worth a dollar, you’ve got a fair deal.
-If you pay a dollar but get a product comparable and/or equivalent to a similar product that is worth more than a dollar, you got a good deal.
-If you pay a dollar (for whatever intent – I understand not all people can shop at other stores for financial reasons) but get a piece of junk that can’t do its main purpose or is of such unreasonably low quality that its practical use is impossible, well then you’ve got a bad deal.
