SAD TIME IN YANKEETOWN
August 25, 2011 01:20PM
Hi Everyone, by now most everyone in the community knows that the Yankeetown General Store has closed. It's up FOR SALE once again. It's a Landmark in Yankeetown, a gathering place for boaters, commercial fishermen, shrimpers, city employees, businessmen, locals. Jen and Jan are wonderful people that gave 110% effort in trying to keep it open, but due to the economy and weather and the fact that summer time is the hardest because quite a bit of the community have homes and family up north they visit.

Frank and I visited Jen yesterday and bought a few pieces of equipment for the restaurant and she and her family are going to be staying in the community (a very big plus) and she'll be looking for employment. Friday and Saturday she's going to have a really HUGE YARD SALE, so please stop by and visit with her before the doors close, and I'm quite sure you'll find quite a few treasures.

Good Luck to Them, I know there will be good things in their future
