That last review is totally malicious and I doubt she (?) knows the owners that well... They are kind, hardworking people through and through. They no longer own the space next to them. In regards to the store, there are no surprises; it serves its exact purpose. There are many Asian snacks and foods compacted into a small area and, while not as big or having as much produce as Golden Market on Broadway, it is cleaner and more welcoming to non-Asians. Most of the products here, however, are dry or frozen--not much fresh stuff. Many of the Asian products are Filipino (hence "Pinoy"), but there are some dry products from other countries like Japan and Malaysia.
In my opinion, this is the best-stocked Dollar Tree in Rockford. I suggest they expand their space as soon as units to each side become vacant and available, if possible. Currently, it's a tight fit, but I shop there because they have a tremendous selection amd maintain their shelves in an organized, clean and neat manner. Staff is helpful, friendly and patient,
Sams is wonderful. They have the best prices and deals and the people are always very friendly! Love their free sample booths. I always find something new to try!
