ok have seen enough of this website. pretty good indication of what is really wrong with gate city and rest of scott county. as long as you are allowed to gather on gc parking lot and trash the place all is good in your little world. and your best hope is what? to draw a check from the gov't or work at a fast food place?

I can tell you what the deal is with Thriftway they need to get rid of that guy name Ty. I think that's his name. He walks to work. Nothing wrong with that but just make sure u know who I am talking about. He is so lazy. Never restocks the bugs in the store. He need to get off his lazy azz . An start doing some work or Terry needs to get let him go. It makes the whole store look bad. As I am typing this he lazy ass is setting on the flower stand and the lady working the register has called for him 2 times to come help her and he still setting maybe he is smoking not sure.

Ty doesn't work up front, he works in the Meat Dept. He's also Terry's son. The boys that work up front as in charge of the whole buggy ordeal, not Ty. I know Ty is lazy but I'll take up for someone when I know they're in the right.

Im not trying to be mean here, and I dont know anyone who works there. But has anyone noticed the guy that looks exactly like the guy that was accused of killing Natalee Holloway, working at TW? I think his name was Joran van der Sloot or something like that. Well this dude at TW could pass for his twin. I kidd you not, look for your selfs. I just about crapped my drawers when I first seen this guy. I thought now whats the chances this guy escaped prison over there and came to America and found his way to Scott Co. to work at TW? As I said I sure dont mean to embarrass or piss this guy off because he cant help it if he looks like a famous killer but hes a twin for van der sloot im telling you. Check it out for yourself!!!!

About a year ago, Ty did "work" up front and on the stock but they moved him to the Meat Dept. due to someone quitting. Travis, Josh, Mitchell, and Cody work up front. And if I'm not mistaken Mitchell has dark hair, it's been over a day ago since I've seen him down there. Since Ty moved departments, his work ethic has improved 10 fold and that is something I know for a fact.

I am a huge fan of thrift way market but not of the front line employees. Ask a question but don't expect to get an answer. I checked out last week with a $200 order and the cashier didn't speak one word to me. Not a hello, not a good day, not a good by, nothing. And yes, she had to get off the phone to start ringing up my groceries. I'll continue shopping there but without expectations of anything beyond the advertised prices.

First and foremost Thrift way has been that areas small grocery sr ore forever. I do agree that the cashier not all but two I know of ruins it for the atmosphere. They act like it's a pain to check someone out, and if you pay with food stamps you get frowned upon. I witnessed the lady in front of me being done this way. I remember back in the day my grandma always stopping by there on the way home from church to get her Sunday dinner. PEOPLE we're friendly. Grocery stores in general have a smell. It takes alot to run a grocery store. And maybe the reason there is only a few people working is because they have less employees to keep your prices affordable. As for you immature idiots getting on here ,acting redneck and uneducated, it's pathetic to even know you are from the same area. People in that area are known for being friendly,don't ruin that. I'm sure as many years as that owner has been there anyone could simply tell him about which cashier was doing what and he would have handled it. Prayers for ignorance on this page. Ps. Go shop at Wal-Mart if you don't like it,I'm sure the rest of gate city ,nickelsville and yes even dunganon will continue to support our small stores like thrift way.
