Dollar Store that really is one

Sooke dollar store



There are two Dollar Stores in Sooke, but only one is truly a Dollar store.  I mean when most of your stuff is like $3 or $4 and even higher, how can you call yourself a Dollar store?

This ‘n That is really the only true Dollar store and is full of some interesting stuff.  Like they even sell bait, milk, and bread at a great discount.  Well not sure about the Bait, as I don’t fish, but hey, just about every store here seems to sell bait.  Wonder if having the Pacific Ocean as your neighbour is why?

Anyhow, thing is the folks running This ‘n That are fun to do business with. Something else about living in Sooke, the people just seem, well more friendly.  And let me say, the lady running this store is a real hoot. It is worth it to just for the fun of talking.  No one is in a hurry to grab your money and push you out, and it just, well makes you want to keep on coming back.

Yes the prices help, but it is also the people.

Like okay the bread is $1.30 a loaf, which is unreal given it is all Dempster products.  I love the cinnamon raisin bagels, but I refuse to pay $5, or more, at the grocery store.  This ‘n That has them (at times) for a mere $1.30.  Yes they are near the expiry date, but so what. Freeze them, take one out if you want, or just make sure you enjoy them in quick fashon.

Then too, feel like you wanted to try one of those speciality breads? Well I am not gonna splurge $4 or so bucks to find out I don’t care for it.  If I see them at This ‘n That I will, because what is a $1.30?

It really is a fun place, and like most dollar stores, they do have a nice variety of things. Socks for $5 that are in some stores for as much as $25 a pair, that are actually good quality. David has two pair, might get more, if they still have some.

Yes that is the downside to buying from a Dollar Store, the products aren’t always available.

Bottom line if you come to Sooke, well across from the Petro Canada station is a tiny strip mall, with This ‘n That in it, and heck, its worth the time to stop in and say hello.

wide range of goods at reasonable prices
