Mr. Min-Sea Wu came to Canada in 1986 from Taiwan, where he was running an international freight company. That same year, after extensive research, he opened his first gift store with a plan to develop the idea into a whole chain. In 1989, while traveling in the USA, Mr. Wu visited a dollar store. With this concept in mind he decided to open a similar store in Montreal. Just a few months later his first dollar store ''Dollar City'', which was 1700 sq.ft was opened. The concept was so successful that with the help of few investors and in a short period of time he opened sven other stores. The new chain was name ''Dollar Empire'' and was operating on a franchise base. In 1991, Mr. Wu decided to go on his own and opened his own big dollar store, which he named Dollar Max. Today Dollar Max has 7 locations including a 25,000 sq.fr. flagship super store.
