What’s Left?

I hope you’re having a great end of summer!  Well - this week is a pretty big week here in Beebe. Our Walmart is opening this Friday morning. It will be a big deal for most families living here and it has been long-awaited, as we have watched the construction for the past several months. I personally did not think Beebe would get a Walmart during my lifetime (hope I’m still here Friday) but I am glad for the convenience and availability of more products for the average family so they don’t have to drive to Cabot or Searcy. I’m especially glad to have the added sales tax revenue which will come to the city from the Walmart store being located here in Beebe.     I hope it doesn’t hurt any of the other merchants here in town - I’d like for everyone to do well!  I always try to buy here in town when I can.

I know the kids are getting ready for school to start - which will be Aug. 19th - not too far away. So, try to work in those last few days of fun, sun and just relaxing before the end of summer!

Go to your happy place.

See you next week!
