The New Hope Police Department is asking the public’s help in identifying those responsible for two day-time, dollar store robberies. Police say two stores on Winnetka Avenue North were robbed this month; the Family Dollar was hit on Feb. 1, and the Dollar Tree was robbed on Feb. 16. In both cases, the robbers had a handgun.
Dollar stores aren’t just for bargain hunters anymore. The down economy is a big reason the discount chains are the fastest-growing retailers in the country right now.
