Dollar Tree Coming to San Carlos?
July 19, 2010
Update — 7/26:
The San Carlos Planning Commission has just given the go-ahead needed for the Dollar Store to move into the space formerly occupied by Hollywood Video.
Former Hollywood Video Site.
A Dollar Tree store in San Carlos? It could happen. A few years after a competing store was blocked from setting up shop in what is now Bianchini's Market, the Dollar Tree is eyeing the spot of the former Hollywood Video Store that's in the Home Depot/Lucky's parking lot on Old County Road. For those of you not familiar with the Dollar Tree (or other stores like it) they sell a bunch of stuff that's priced at $1, hence their name.
In tonight's Planning Commission Meeting, the owner of the building at 1121 Old County Road will ask the City to modify the conditional use permit that's in place for the building, thus clearing the way for a wider variety of uses for the building…like a Dollar Tree store.

What Do You Think?
San Carlos residents already punted on the idea of a “discount” store like this one, but it was closer to downtown. What do you think about a Dollar Tree store in San Carlos?
