Horrified Dollar Tree customers entered a Dollar Tree in Austin, Texas to find a manager keeping the business afloat with no other employees.
TikToker Felipe, whose username is @x_bazan06, shared the Dollar Tree manager’s story in a now viral video.
According to the video, the Dollar Tree location was closed for three days.
“I walked [away] three days long. So the store was closed for three days,” says the manager. “[I’m the] workers only.”
“She’s the only person who works here,” Felipe can be heard saying. “She worked here all day.”
The store appears to have suffered a flood or water damage. A line of customers can be seen waiting to pay for items.
Felipe’s footage shows boxes all over the store waiting to be unpacked. Many of the shelves are empty or bare.
“They left her to fill up this whole store,” a voice-over is heard saying. “No toilet breaks.”
The video also claims that people “who don’t even work here” were unpacking boxes and loading items onto shelves and into freezers.
In the comments section of the video, Felipe claims, “Homeless people helped her.”
The video has been viewed more than 2.2 million times. Customers had strong opinions about the company’s treatment of the manager.
“They’ve increased their prices, but they can’t take better care of their employees? smh,” said one TikToker.
“The poor lady can’t stop knowing she has bills to pay… someone has to find her so we can bless her,” wrote another.
“Somebody call the fire department and they’re going to shut down this store!” That is not sure!! And they won’t let the store open until everything is ok,” chimed in another.
“This lady can win a lawsuit big!! So no one else will cover for them to take a break,” wrote another.
