Checking Out Z Mart Dollar Plus Food Store
I followed up on a tweet from HStreetDC and decided to stop by this new establishment that is located at 806 H Street. As you probably gleaned from its name, this is a dollar store. Many of its offerings are typical of other dollar stores in the area, except that it carries a more extensive selection of food items. In addition to the normal canned soups, you can also buy staples like flour and sugar. They've only been open two days, and it looks like they are still pricing many items. I picked up a bottle of Kikkoman Soy Sauce that didn't have a price tag and it ended up running me $1.29. The clerk, who I think may have also been the owner, introduced himself as Muhammad. He was all smiles, and eager to talk about the newly opened business. The plan appears to be to undersell the Rite-Aid across the street. He was a young guy and very friendly. Consider stopping by the next time you need a few kitchen items and don't want to brave the lines at Safeway. They also had a good selection of cold sodas.
