Roses Department Store?

In our local newspaper, there is story about a Roses Store opening in our area. I have never heard of them. Evidently they are common in the southeast area.
I was wondering what kind of merchandise they carry and what is the opinion of shoppers who have frequented there.

Most of ours are closing, so I am surprised to hear of a new one opening up. My opinion? They tend to be dirty, overly priced, mine does not take coupons, and stock is old. They carry the same type of stuff as a regular Target or Walmart. A few aisles of groceries, toys, clothing, home furnishings, etc. I only go in when it is the only option.

Exactly! Last time I did go in one most the items on the shelves were dusty. Used to be 3 around here 2 have closed down.

I've been to Roses in three states and eight cities.
I would call them a large Doller General. I think DG is nicer than Family Dollar.
THe funny thing is, when I return to the communities we lived in, I shop at Roses. In one town, Fayetteville, NC each was different, both in what they carried, and in the cleanliness.
I still have some things I bought there ten years ago.

I have sheers I got for $5 and have used them in every LR since 2002.
We bought awesome kitchen chirs and stools we still use from 2000.
I got a cofee grinder for $5, still in (daily) use 11 years later.
One store had darling kids clothes. I go back there and get DD some things once in a while.
BUT, I've had some serious duds too.
If it is new then it will be clean and fresh.

Sandy: Roses was originally founded by the Rose Family in Henderson NC. They "went public" about 10 years ago and then were bought out by a group that owns several different discount type stores about 5 years ago. I guess its a YMMV situation. There are still two Roses in Henderson and both carry items to definately compete with Walmart. In fact, thats where many of the locals go BEFORE Wallys. They also get , I guess you'd call it surplus, returns that didn't sell for some reason elsewhere. Its not unusual to see items with Dollar General, Penny's or Walmart tags. Don't know what your bread prices are, but Rose's sell bread for a dollar a loaf. That's cheaper than theday old Bread store and its not just gummy white bread. I agree with some of the other posters in that I hadn't heard of any plans for expansion. You might be pleasantly surprised!

Yep, much like Big Lots or Ollie's in the aspect. I just took a look at my local Roses (recently moved) and was pretty impressed. Yeah, the store wasn't very well kept but the selection was decent. Good way to find a bargain.

My mother lives in Forest City, NC and I think the one there is still open. I had no idea they were expanding. I remember going to Roses as a child back in the day. The last time I went was maybe 4 years ago. It is kind of like Big Lots meets Family Dollar meets an old school Walmart. She still goes in there from time to time and finds some good deals on kids clothes, linens ,etc.

Sorry for bumping up an old thread but I have to disagree with some of the posts here. I just had a great experience in Roses today. The employees were helpful, the store was clean and the prices on just about everything were very cheap for NEW items. When I'm done getting my (main) finances in order for this month, I plan on going back and buying a whole bunch of stuff.
