Fashion & Shopping Quotes
Sometimes, wearing a scarf and a polo coat and no makeup and with a certain attitude of walking, I go shopping or just look at people living. But then, you know, there will be a few teenagers who are kind of sharp, and they’ll say, ‘Hey, just a minute. You know who I think that is?’ And they’ll start tailing me. And I don’t mind.

Discount retailer DII has set up new digs in North Bellmore.
The 58-year-old chain opened a store on June 12 in a former Rite Aid space at 2815 Jerusalem Ave.
The Brooklyn-headquartered retailer, whose tag line is “deals and discounts,” sells household goods, groceries, clothing, toys, personal care items and other products.
DII’s 16 stores sell discounted items from vendors’ “end lot” inventory, said Stephanie Mehta, director of human resources for the retailer.
“And we get a great deal because they’re just trying to get rid of the few pieces that are left and then we pass on that savings to the customer. It’s the same valuable products as if we bought it first lot,” she said.
Longtime New Yorkers might be familiar with the DII chain, which began in 1962 in Manhattan as DeeDee’s. Some stores later were called Big D, Mehta said.
The business is owned by Brooklyn
