About Us


A Personal Welcome from John and Christina Watson, the proud owners of Dollar Express Plus!!


It has long been our dream; to one day own our own business, after working for corporations for so many years. As we looked at the many business opportunities available, we became very interested in the dollar store business and the exciting values we could bring to the community where we would open our store. We know there is a lot of competition in the dollar arena, but our goal is to be a different and better dollar store for you. We will provide quality products at great prices, offering a variety of items you may need and want. New weekly items, seasonal items and the day-to-day necessities will all be available in one convenient stop. We want you to always leave our store completely satisfied and with a smile on your face.


We are newlyweds, married this past May of 2014. Christina is a native Californian born and raised in the El Monte area. She has over 10 years of retail experience, most recently as Assistant Store Manager at Toys R Us. John is originally from Denver, Colorado but has lived in the Southern California area for the past 18 years. He started at the ground level in retail and his 30+ years of experience working for Kmart, Target and Toys R Us has been a continual climb from stock boy to District Manager over as many as 15 stores. We are also the proud “parents” of two beautiful dogs: Destiny, a Pomeranian and Buttercup, a mix of Weiner and Papillion. 

We are excited to serve you and to be a part of this great community. We look forward to meeting you and providing a store where you can not only find quality products at reasonable prices, but where you can visit and know that you will be treated like family.
