Just got word before lunch today that Magic Mart has made a bid to move into the GCS building. Smyth County Industrial Authority rep says could be as soon as February! This will be great for Saltville!

I heard this from Brenda Sutherland and she has close ties with the authority. Also, Clav Hilton with Magic Mart says there is a high probability of the store opening in late February to early March. I hope it all works out!

Don't tell our town fathers,because they will stop it from coming. Just like Todd did for the shopping mall last time. Can anyone tell the public where all the gas money has went? Can't seem to find it listed on the town budget anywhere.

It is in that black hole account.

That building is designed for a retail store. How ugly was it to have the trucks parked on the front porch. They have moved them to the side. An old woman could now climb over the gates and steal the tools. Maybe they have a camera watching them.
Our town let the shop building fall down. We had several other sites that could be used for the town shop. PCS TRIED to give the town their site, what a wonderful place it could have been for the town shop. The shop should have never been in the well fields, that is suppose to be a tourist attraction. That old town shop is a snake pit, it needs to be burned down. Also, why would you put the shooting range for the police in a wildlife area? Many Many stupid decisions have been and are still being made inregard to our town. There is no 5-year plan, 10 year plan, much less 15 year plan. Where are we going? How funny to make the town hall an emergency shelter, it can hold maybe 50 people. Another tax dollar screw up. Reline should be fixes every pipe in town for free, would someone please look into that. I am sure they would be glad to.

Ou town fathers has again agreed to something very stupid. Retail trade business always has to keep their prices in line with the other guys. Food Country does (lol) soooo much for this town. Paying employees nothing and throwing a few, very few donations around. At the Abingdon store compared to Saltville it is amazing what they give to the community.

All food country's Stuff is old. I never buy anything from that store and I never will. I will drive to Chilhowie to Food City or to Kroger in Abingdon first. I got some meat there once and my whole family got food poisoning. I will never spend as much as a penny in that place and their employees are very rude to old people. That is one thing I will not tolerate . So as for Food City they can keep their rotten meats and old stuff there are other options. The worst thing that ever happened in Saltville was for the Piggly Wiggly to close. Charlie and Jackie were both good to everyone and they helped folks a lot too.

That's probably not true, however a good lawyer could get that removed in the first 10 mins of a court session.
