ROCKFORD, IL – Dollars PLUS™, a national chain of low cost convenience stores, announced that they will be building their next three  locations throughout the Rockford area.  

Paggy Monsoon, public relations representative for Dollars PLUS™, spoke at a press release at Rockford’s City Hall:

“We’re excited to bring to Rockford our lowbudget shopping experience, with the excellent service and products that you’d expect from the Dollars PLUS ™ name. We know that this will be a great partnership between our corporation and the community of Rockford, in Illinois.  The land of opportunities and a home to real, original, excellent shopping experiences!  


Rockford has all the demographics we’re looking for in an American city:  A depressed housing market, a lack of smart public transportation, high property tax rates, and of course, a huge crime problem.  It’s a match made in Rockford!


We can’t wait to employ your surliest of low wage workers.”  –  Paggy Monsoon

Rockford’s Board of Business Development president, Steve Jerques, offered an assessment of this wonderful news for the region.

“Stores like Dollars PLUS ™ are a great asset to our community and provides an economic bandaid until we replace decades of manufacturing jobs lost to Beloit and Darfur. 


We try and attract the Embry-Riddles and the huge corporations but let’s be honest with each other and our neighbors, most of Rockford’s  population isn’t anywhere near smart enough to work at one of those places.  






It’s great to be able to provide the “meat and taters” crowd with some employment and retail opportunities, which is why Dollars PLUS™ will be very successful in Rockford.  Let us all rise from our computers and iPads to give ourselves a round of applause once more!”  – Steve Jerques

Construction will begin soon at the downtown location.  You’ll know more when we know less.™

– Ron Kites
