The Beginning

In the Spring of 1998, Russ Meszaros (President) and Sherry Meszaros had an idea to raise the bar in the dollar store industry by opening a dollar store that was less cluttered, well merchandised, brighter, cleaner and more inviting for customers to shop. The idea expanded on the practical knowledge and experience Russ had gained from working hands-on in a major Western Canadian grocer.

Within a few short months, Russ and Sherry opened their first store in Merritt, BC. Within weeks they opened their second corporate store in Kelowna, BC. These stores were such a success that they immediately started franchising this concept. A few years later, Your Dollar Store with More had over 100 stores. Today that number has expanded to over 120 stores.

Corporate Stores

Operating corporate stores gives us a hands-on approach that allows us to understand the daily operating issues faced by franchisees. This hands-on approach allows us to better assist you in dealing with suppliers, product selection, and day-to-day operational issues.
