Petition opposes possible Dollar General

JasperJunction

    Dollar General is interested in a site on Cove Road at the corner of Grandview Road, which has many nearby residents in a panic over the possibility.

     A group of residents are up in arms over the possibility of a Dollar General being built at the corner of Grandview Road and Cove Road, with a petition circulating that has garnered hundreds of signatures as of press time.
    The uprising against the discount store comes just six months after the Pickens County Planning Commission denied a request for a parcel on the other corner of Grandview and Cove roads to be rezoned for the purpose of developing a Dollar General.

Dollar General is definitely the crabgrass in the lawn of life, but with that being said, they are handy in some locations. However, this is not one of them. We must strive to preserve any nuance of our local history. Dollar General needs to move on.

Hey, people, deal with it! That store won't bring one problem to your precious little lives. You're just being paranoid. You rich people will be safe and secure in your pretty little homes even if the store is built. What's the difference between a Dollar General and the meth-shack looking stores that have occupied that space in the last few years anyway? It sounds like an improvement to me.

The intersection at Grandview and cove is already a mess we already have 3 in pickens and if you know what a meth shack looks like it probably means you have been a customer at one
