I know this sounds like an ad, but it’s not. This is just really great news for all of us at Silverock! Conveniently located just a few miles down the road in Crane Hill, is a brand new Dollar General store. For those of you who’ve never heard of it, Dollar General is the largest discount retailer in the United States by number of stores with more than 8,200 neighborhood stores located in 35 states. And in case you didn’t know, lots of your favorite national brands including food, snacks, health and beauty aids, cleaning supplies, basic apparel, house wares and seasonal items are there waiting on you at really low prices. Dollar General is among the largest retailers of top-quality products made manufacturers such as Procter & Gamble, Kimberly Clark, Unilever, Kellogg’s, General Mills, Nabisco, and Fruit of the Loom. Interestingly, while other retailers struggle in the grips of the recession, Dollar General’s earnings rose 48 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008 compared to the same period a year ago.
To get there, drive out of Silverock Cove up to County Road 222. Turn left on 222 and its probably 2 or 3 miles down on the right side of the road. Just a little past the Crane Hill Post Office.
See you there!
