My husband and I recently went into The Great Canadian Dollar Store next to Western Foods to purchase a birthday card and I noticed against the farthest wall where the toys are were very realistic toy guns, assault rifles and so on.
I am extremely troubled by this and cannot think of one reason why the Dollar Store should have these items for sale there.
I hope customers will take note and ask the folks working in the store why they are selling toy weapons and if they can remove them.
