    As a long time resident of Des Moines, coming here, attracted to three local grocery stores, I am disappointed to find news of a Dollar Tree opening where our beloved QFC once reigned . Though it carries little of no weight here; I object and would love to see, for example, a Trader Joe’s or Metropolitan Market. We really need business owner that live in and love our Des Moines, not New Your enterprises who do not care one way or the other bout what we want or need. I strongly advocate not patronizing Dollar Tree as long as we have two others well within a short drive, up on 99 for example. So much for my soap box tirade. Look what happened to the Des Moines Cinema when we quit attending due to poor management and hundred year old candy bars. I guess I am a bigot here because we shopped there twice in the last five or ten years. Oh, well.

      It does sees like a step backwards to not have a grocery store in the downtown district.
      I know that we don’t have a “Food Desert”, but we sure are lacking grocery stores in our city.
      Really a Dollar Tree? That will definitely attract higher end shoppers!
      I would vote for a McLendon’s – I would prefer shopping for my hardware needs in Des Moines vs Lowes in Kent or Ace in Normandy Park.
