Dollarama product

I recently purchased 12 rolls of Dollarama Pro Duramax Packing Tape for $2 Canadian per roll.This stuff is of extremely poor quality and should not be sold and advertised as packing tape.It has extremely poor adhesive quality.I am moving out soon and I packed about 100 boxes with this stuff.After a very short while it peels off on its own.I just hope that the movers do not have any problems moving my boxes because of this.

Dollarama faulty products

I am a regular shopper at Dollarama, and recently went in and purchase some paper lanterns! Now I understand that some products that you buy from Dollarama a cheaply made and that's why they're only $1.25(or whatever)! But when you buy something and it doesn't work out of the package they should at least let you exchange it! I can't help but wonder how much money this company has made selling people crap that doesn't work! It's not the money that makes me mad, it's that thought! They make LOTS of mone off of they're "no exchange, no refund" policy! I'm affraid it gives me pause as to whether or not saving a few cents off of other products it worth the gamble! I think I'll just buy it from Walmart and know that if there's a problem with the product I'll have NO PROBLEM return it!

USB memory stick does not work. Paid $3 and expected it to work because that is the average price for a 1GB USB. Many other items at this stors, though cheap, do their jobs around the household. But if you need a USB, buy it elsewhere.

3 dollar for a 1gb is the full normal price for a USB and you must expect a good product. This dollarama USB flash drive garbage is not worth more than 50 cents, it should be 2 for one dollar or at most two for $1.25 plus tax. Dollarama became very rich with all kinds of garbage scams that people ignored because it was less than a dollar for a item, but today to be scammed for 3 dollars for a small s hit it is a big deal, and government are crooks too because Dollarama collect tax for them after they, Dollarama scam people.

Don't buy the plastic garden edging. I bought 20 and didn't notice that they broke as the cashier put them in a bag till I got home. I spent $33 + on garbage ! The ones that didn't break when put in the bag, broke when I tried to gently put them in the ground even after softening the soil.
These should be better quality even for a dollar store. They are selling them for the same price as can tire. I only went to dollar store for more variety in colour. Sigh... And all of you that are saying items are only a dollar. Yes well some or those items are only a dollar at other places too. And a dollar is a dollar and when you spend $30 on the items and they are all crap well that's not just a dollar is it?!
I agree you get what you pay for but still they shouldn't break after you pay and before you leave the store.

This is a new complain regarding Dollarama in Hanover Ontario. Nothing to do with the product but here's what happened. I purchased $70. worth of product, for my office and for personal use. I paid and I left. It was fairly busy, but not overwhelming for the cashiers by any means. When I arrived at home, I discovered that a lportion of my purchase was missing. Obviously, I had not received the second bag. So, naturally I called the store to report the lost bag.

The person who answered the phone, said she did not have the bag. She passed me to the manager. The manager was rude and displayed such an attitude that I actually asked her if she thought I was lying. After several minutes of explanation, I could tell she was anxious for me to just hang up and forget about it.

I had to ask HER myself if she would take my number and name in case someone turned the bag in. I thought that she should have suggested this.

I said to her that the cashier may have accidentally given the bag to the next customer. She said that didn't happen although how she knew for certain I am not sure. I asked her if this happened a lot. She said "only once before and the customer found the bag in the trunk of her car." She said it with such vehemence, that I was sure she meant that I had left it in my car as well. I didn't expect a lot from her, but I frankly, she was abrupt and showed no interest in my problem at all.

I own a business of my own. If I treated my customers this way, I would be unemployed. I didn't expect her to give me the $30. of lost items, but she might have at least offered to look under the cash counter. I will never shop at Dollarama again. A blessing in disguise, perhaps. Janice Macdonald

firstly, not all dollarama stores put out bad items or do they know that some items are going to be defective. Dollarama has a recall policy and head office tells them to take the poorly product off the shelves. It is not always the stores issue, Customers come into the dollarama and rip packaging open, open sealed boxes, destroy items simply because it is the dollarama and they feel they have the right to destroy the place. The no return no exchange policy is appropriate for a dollarama. Not all dollarama employees are nasty and mean many are nice and pleasant, it is usually the destruction of their hard work and the ignorance customers give them that turn them sour and eventually quit because of it. So next time you feel like shooting off at the lips about the dollarama think how hard those people work and how terrible they are treated and disrespected by customers. Get over yourself and move on.

Dollarama no bathrooms

Every store that does not offer bathrooms to their customers should not be allowed to operate. If someone needs a bathroom, it is never a matter "oh yippee, I've been waiting to use the bathroom at Dollarama". It's a matter of health and necessity, depending on the person's system - this can cause extreme discomfort. I refuse to shop Dollaramas until they offer healthy options of restrooms for their customers.

Wow some very intelligent comments and others? What does minimum wage have to do with anything? But I won't even address you as your comment is too juvenile.
Let me clarify some things, I have a bladder problem- can't hold, there were no stores next door - new strip mall, Dollerama was the only store open, I could had to drive to Wal-Mart who has bathrooms and still had an embarrassing accident to which I should consider even suing. But that's besides the point. Imagine yourself stuck either with a child or yourself that can't hold and having someone being rude to you. Frankly it was very unpleasant and though I'm really tempted with some of you - I don't wish it to happen to anyone on this list or anywhere. But this is the old problem of because it doesn't touch me in any negative way I have to ridicule the complaint, make fun of it or just be ignorant. Yes people for the most part are not clean- fact of life, I work in a corporation and the bathrooms are not any better as far as cleanliness. But to deny someone a necessary hygiene act because you don't want dirty bathrooms or out of sheer insensitivity is uncalled for and not good business. I now drive further and go to the other Dollarama that does allow customers to use their restrooms.

First of all use spellcheck, second of all some people have scheduled that are obviously much busier than yours I'm sure, I'm a single Mom with 2 jobs. IF there's no law there should be one. This is a complaint and I'm entitled to have it and by the looks of your response could really care less what you think.

I have tried phoning and leaving messages over and over . This bar has a piece of plastic in it and it lodged in my mouth, and make me choke . I spit it into a bag with the butter I took it in and the other piece of the bar. Someone needs to contact me before someone chokes on it .

If you're going here, good luck finding a parking space. The older cashier with grey hair is extremely rude but no where near as rude as the manager who blatantly harass, abuse and steals from their customers. They sell broken, and faulty products that don't do what they say they will do.

Without going into a tirade with this Mac pr1c4, not all stores have bathrooms for customers. It's unfortunate but true.

Remember that if you have a condition, the condition is not written on a big board hovering over your head. You have to ask politely to use the bathroom. If that doesn't work you then can FYI them of your condition -- subtly! Causing a scene does not get your needs across and only further damages the other disabled people who need the kindness, understanding and tactfullness of others when faced with a bathroom emergency.

And developing acting skills really works wonders. I'm glad I practiced looking desperate. It comes in handy even when you just have to pee.
