Black Leaders Push Back Against Dollar Stores - Capital B

They sometimes seem to be growing exponentially. 

"Dollar stores" seem to be everywhere, especially in poorer minority neighborhoods.

And some people oppose that growth:

“There are some people in the communities that feel like, ‘What do you got against dollar stores?’ … They provide quality things for poor people,’” (Baltimore, Democratic state Sen. Mary Washington ) said. “When you explain … they sell canned goods that are very close to the expiration day, or they’re expanding their grocery section so now we can’t get a full service grocery store into the community … they get it.”
