Products & Services
late 1980's and early 1990's were the green years for America's dollar
stores. It was during these fertile years that Steven Bakst, a seasoned
buyer who has over 20 years experience purchasing closeout and
over-stocked merchandise, opened the first Just-A-Buck store, in
Poughkeepsie, New York, with his sister, Rochelle. The crowds in the
aisles of the flagship Just-A-Buck store reinforced the Baksts’ faith
in the dollar store concept.
So successful was the first store
that the company soon opened more. With each new store, Just-A-Buck
refined the concept until they perfected a tried-and-true formula.
Finding competent managers to maintain the locations in the prescribed
manner wasn’t easy. Unlike some dollar stores often marred by
hodgepodge displays and disheveled merchandise, Just-A-Buck stores were
meticulously neat and clean. Customer service was never one of the
items permitted to be discounted.
The Baksts had an idea that
owners/operators would have the spirit to make their stores succeed.
They took a third partner, Robert Capone, and in 1992 sold their first
franchise. Today, Just-A-Buck stores are flourishing. Many are in the
very same locations where other dollar stores failed. And they’re run
by franchisees who have discovered the American dream really can come
true. All it takes is lots of drive and Just-A-Buck.
