When Dollar General first came to Leoti, the store closed every night at 7:00. Shortly after that, the new closing time was upped to 8:00. Still, customers wanted an even later close time so they opted to keep the business open every night until 9:00. Wichita Countians have really appreciated the longer workday at Dollar General. I have seen people arrive at the store at 9:00 and still want to be admitted in to shop.
So, now, the powers-that-be of Dollar General Stores have decided to run a trial on Friday and Saturday, October 29th and 30th, to see if they should keep the store open until 10:00 CST.
Personally, I am extremely happy and thankful that Leoti has a Dollar General Store! Plenty of Greeley County customers drive to Leoti on a regular basis just so they can take advantage of the DG prices. Leoti's store is quite popular! $G is our small town Wal-Mart. LOL!!! I am also very pleased that it stays open as late as it does. There have been a bunch of times when we have had to make a fast run to purchase something that we need RIGHT NOW--not tomorrow. LOL! So, if you are a person who thinks that you would patronize a 10:00 closing at Leoti's Dollar General, do some shopping on those two evenings! That is the only way that the corporate offices will know if there is enough business to warrant the later closing time.
I would also like to mention that I am extremely impressed with the clean facelift inside the store! It is so easy to get around in the store now. The shelves are full and there always seems to be some brand new variety of products! Much of the credit needs to be given to Shonda Harp-Taylor who is the new store manager.
