As part of my vacation trip south this year, I focused in on some interesting finds in the panhandle of West Virginia. One such find was this Dollar General Market in Wellsburg, WV. Perhaps the market design is more common in other areas of the country, but as far as I know no such design exists in the blog's coverage area. I took the opportunity to stop in and get an experience of what the store is like.

This store seemed to be doing pretty well which makes sense as the nearest Walmart is at least around 10 miles or so away. Kroger does have a location down the road, but likely lacks a selection of general merchandise due to its smaller size. The convenience of having all the items that Dollar General normally sells with the added bonus of extra market items would easily put a hurting a Walmart.
