Dave Gold launched his 99 Cents Only Stores empire in Los Angeles at age 50 after mulling over the idea for over a decade. The thrifty entrepreneur took the dollar store concept and introduced it to middle-class and upscale neighborhoods. In the process, he created a chain that has become a mainstay for families squeezed during hard times or those who simply love a good bargain. Gold died Monday at his Mid-Wilshire home from an apparent heart attack, said his son, Jeff Gold. He was 80. Long before dollar stores dotted many street corners, Gold opened the first 99 Cents Only store in Los Angeles in 1982.

Drivers could still reject what company executives are calling their final offer, and will meet to consider a strike option Sunday, said Paul Kenny, secretary treasurer of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 630.

"Your choice! While supplies last. No limit," the 99 Cents Only Stores newspaper ad screamed. The ad teaser poked fun at the falling stock market by slashing an imaginary price originally set at 99 cents.
