I live in a small town - we have a grocery store, a drug store and Dollar General. It is the Christmas Season yet when you try to shop the Dollar General in Richwood Nicholas Co WV there is very little stock left (must have have one profitable Black Friday).
The impression I get is that there will be no more incoming stock before Xmas.
This store has been out of Xmas lights and other things since the first of the month. You need to take a serious look at the Corporate Department in charge of ordering and shipping to the local stores....if you don't have it on the shelves you can't sell it...and people end up shopping elsewhere.,
