“Everyone complaining about higher prices and that’s one of the reason it went under, it was too cheap of a price to operate on and everyone stop going and the ones that did go wasn’t enough to keep it updated and pay salary as well. The real world mom and pop supposed to be more expensive but higher quality. You get the one on one service. Try to own a store in tupelo and see how hard it is . That’s the reason we have a dollar general on every corner now.”

~ Roy Hendrix (Facebook)

“I worked for Don Wall for MANY years and loved it. I hate to see it going through all the changes.”
