Hula dancer figurines. As-Seen-on-TV gimcrack. Fake flowers. Kids' socks. Costumes. Snacks. Helium balloons. TV Dinners. Two-for-$1 greeting cards.

But what we really love about this particular Dollar Tree is its friendly cashiers — who seem as genuinely excited as we are each time we bring a cart full of bargains to the checkout lane. We also appreciate that Dollar Tree remains the local tree of life, so to speak, providing much-needed commerce to an all-but-abandoned Maplewood strip mall.
