After months of waiting and watching, Gantt residents could actually shop in the community’s new Dollar General Store, which opened for business Sunday.

Store officials at another local branch said shoppers were greeted at 8 a.m.

Gantt Mayor Missy Grissett said she was “proud” of the town’s most recent retail addition.

“I am proud for the community,” Grissett said. “I think it’s going to be a good thing for the town for easy access.”
