If you're rich, poor, shop at dollar general or nordtroms, you still should support growth of any kind. I agree we don't need a dollar store. We do need more business. The only way to change these things is to vote better city leadership in and support local business. Our town has been run in the ground by all the old money. That's why most of the youth with any ambition have moved. Then all we will have left is the poor, the ghetto blacks and the dollar store.
Poor is poor - white ghetto or otherwise.

I don't think anyone could have chosen a more perfect store than Dollar General to top off this p****** match!!
They should be thanking their lucky stars it is a store, not a homeless shelter, food bank, group home, or thrift store that supports any of the afore mentioned. Always count your blessings, because it could always be worse. They could have ended up with a hog farm next door.

People amaze me.
They come here to whine about thier town getting a new business. Its a positive business as well.
That should tell u something...that a billion dollar corporation thinks enough of the town to invest in it.
Be thankful,at least its not another liquor store or pharmacy.
As for the man who sold them the land..I hope he got top dollar!! Stop hating on him,he did what we ALL would,given the chance.
As for the "rich" not wanting it in thier neighborhood or town...take your blinders off. Your not rich by any means,and wouldnt know real money if u saw it,hence why no MAJOR dept or grocery chain will come here.
See the pretty forest?
Sorry...guess all the trees got in your way.

Ok dumbass. Let say you were born into money. Would you say ok I don't want it. Of course not you would carry on the family business. Or if you marry in to money. Same thing. The rich are rich because they are way smarter than you ignorant folks that use this chicken shit posting site. Keep on scratching your dumb ass while they keep banking the dough. Bet they don't even know this site exists.
You found this site and posted on it does that make you "better"? I'm pretty sure Brad found it look on page #2, he doesn't sound very happy. Merry Christmas to all

Being born rich is great, I wouldn't know, but did he have to build such a large castle just outside town and then bitch because someone moved in next door. By the way, Brad lives all alone in that enormous house and bought his wife a $500,000 house in Cape. Money can't buy you happiness. With all his money I still wouldn't trade places with him, and by the way I'm not a dumbass. You call this a chicken shit posting site, what does that make you since you're on here?

The metal infrastructure is going up now...

Ok all kidding aside...for those of us who aren't rich a DG store isn't a terrible thing to have near you. It just smacks of elitist snobbery to complain so vehemently against some really good little stores.

The one in Benton has done wonders for the town.

DG likes to build on the edge of towns for some reason so that's probably why they picked that spot. Maybe the people complaining should make DG an offer to build somewhere else? My suggestion would be near the junction of HH,ZZ, and U.S.61.

The large vinyl signs are pretty ridiculous, and were probably very expensive. I hope the young Mr. Bedell, who works with his dad in his multi-million dollar businesses, wasn't responsible for these signs.

Who else would be responsible for signs on his property?

Don't worry, he probably owns the company who made the signs. They have their hands in other businesses other than nursing homes....

Maybe Dollar General will move their Headquarters to Sikeston. Got to be a record for a town this size to have 4?

The new one replaced the one in MidTown Village. This one is going to replace the one at the mall.

When you transition from different types of zoning, its usually done in increments, i.e., residential to duplexes to multifamily to commercial to light industrial to industrial. In other words, there's usually a buffer between residential and commercial. I'm not going argue the merits (or lack) of the Bedell family but there's been several comments about "elites" on this topic. What most of you people don't seem to understand is this whole issue involves two family of "elites". The difference between the two is that one family inherited every freakin' thing they own and the other family has worked for many years to accumulate their wealth. Bedell paid a BIG chunk of cash to purchase the building site, then even more to build a fine home. So...when all of a sudden a commercial enterprise sprouts up next door...I mean REALLY NEXT DOOR....I'd be really pi**ed, too.

I think the only option would be for the homeowner to make an offer for the building and land to DG. Maybe some sort of land swap along with the money Dollar General has already spent. Personally I wouldn't mind it on down the road a ways if it's worth the cost to the homeowner to do so. Now that the concrete and steel has been started it would be a VERY expensive venture to change things.

One question. Did the owner of the house, buy the property from jb? If so, Im sure jb didnt tell him he had big plans to build right next door commercially? I would be more than pissed. Its just not right.

Bedell bought the property from jb's mother-in-law....or a trust that she had established. Pretty sure there was an immediate need for cash. Jb did not nor does not own any of the property...belongs to his wife and her sister.
