Borrego Sun - Since 1949

A fan of the .99 Cent store!

I regularly shop at the .99 cent stores in Escondido. I notice Mercedes and other expensive vehicles park adjacent to mine in the parking lot. I am impressed by the friendly service efficiency and quality of merchandise, fresh fruits and vegetables. They sell some name brands, not just seconds.

The store would provide new jobs. It could even give our high schoolers training and experience in marketing. Perhaps some of the crowd at the church food banks, as well as our hard-working Hispanic families would become customers. Many of us elderly who “count our pennies” to enjoy living in Borrego would welcome them. What caring community wouldn’t want to encourage this for its citizens?
