Rural DOLLAR GENERAL BLIGHT photo contest

Despite significant community opposition from Joshua Tree, the Dollar General corporation is still working diligently with San Bernardino County planners to put one of their stores here. What will it look like?

A friend of Defend writes:

This is what rural “Dollar General” stores look like, I’ve seen them all over this country:

They’re metal sheds. And I’m sure the landscaping of ragweed and broken glass and Pampers and sports drink bottles will be matched completely in the Joshua Tree location!

Do you have any photos or videos of Dollar General blight in a rural location? Please share them with us so we can have an even better idea of what’s coming to Joshua Tree. Email your submissions to Defend Joshua Tree — the most accurate submissions will be posted on this site soon…
