babygirl, its the same old answer. burkesville and cumberland county does NOT have the ECONOMIC base to support any type of really good stores or restraunts. It takes money to make money--I.E. burkesville has to have a population with money to make it worthwhile for businesses that require good profits to come here....No national chain store or eating establishment can afford to open a place in a little borough like this, theres no profit in it.....

Build them ... they will come. There is plenty of population in Burkesville, it's just that everyone is going to places like Bowling Green, Glasgow, Tompkinsville, Edmonton, etc. to shop and eat out.

I've never seen "Field of Dreams" but would like to. I have heard that phrase over and over though. I think it's kind of like "Git R Done." Just a catchy phrase.

I don't mean any harm just wishing there were more opportunities in Burkesville to benefit the people as a whole and not just a few. I like the small town atmosphere but read so much about drugs and shootings and suicides, I wonder what is so wrong. You see things like this happening a lot in the bigger cities in the poverty areas. Is there so much poverty and depression in CC that people are turning to drugs and alcohol?

Restaurants Edmonton has: The Belaire, The Pit Stop (BBQ), a chinese restaurant (good food), a mexican restaurant (good), McDonalds (haven't noticed any flies), Subway and I know there are other places but haven't tried them yet.

Places to shop: General Dollar Market, kind of like Fred's but with more food selections (good prices and there is another food store but I can't remember the name of it (down by McDonalds).

Walmart is the end all end all of all economic troubles and also a place to eat. LOL save your money and don't buy dust collectors and also cook at home and you will save much more money. Eating out is ok now and then but it seems most people's answer to small town problems is build a walmart and more eateries. Most businesses won't even consider a small town because there is not enough interest eg. applications on file with the local employment office. Some even won't come unless there are 700 plus applications on file. If you do a little bit of research, you will find out that walmart has slowed their building of new stores quite a bit due to their flooding of the marketplace. Burkesville nor Albany will get one because there are stores in Columbia, Monticello, and Glasgow and are within the driving distance. To build a new Walmart hurts the existing ones. What Burkesville needs are jobs that can hired workers who have a skill such as carpentry, electrical, or plumbing skills. With the correct leadership and support Burkesville could become the next little Gatlinburg of south central KY. We have the state park and some of those wives and families would love to get off the lake at times to have other things to do. The square could be a tourist trap mecca of small shops that sold a specific range of arts and crafts or other goods.
