Magnolia’s Dollar General Store opened last week.
The grand opening ceremony is planned for 8 a.m. Saturday, but word about the new store has spread quickly in the small community.
Saturday, the parking lot was packed with vehicles and inside, the aisles were full of residents filling carts with food items, clothing or cleaning supplies.
Hazel Hodges was looking over every aisle, putting a few items in her cart, but mostly browsing in the well-lit store.
“It takes awhile to get through everything,” she said.
