MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis Dollar stores are being hit hard with robberies.

Memphis police have responded to robberies at 48 different locations in the last year.

Two of the most targeted locations are Family Dollar on Park Avenue and Dollar General on Jackson Avenue.

“I feel like every area of town is just as much threat as the other one,” Rhonda Stewart said. “So you're not safe anywhere. I'm not going to stop coming to one location just because it's been hit more than once, because I could be anywhere, and if it's meant to happen, it's going to happen."

Family Dollar said the safety of customers and employees is their top priority, but they have not said what precautions are being taken or if security guards will be added.
