Spend your money in Paulding County

Every single one of us like to get a bargain and some people will drive miles to save a few cents. Recently, I have noticed that gas prices vary, sometimes being cheaper in a bigger city. However, do you want to drive 30 miles to save 2 cents on a gallon of gas?

Price is a major factor in where and when people shop. In economically hard times, we all gravitate to the best bargains, even if it means going out of the county or out of the state to buy something.

Years ago our downtown streets were part of a bustling, thriving community. It was more difficult to travel out of town, so merchandise and supplies were purchased locally. Therefore, the small grocery stores, dress stores, hardware stores, hat shops and many more businesses were flourishing in those earlier days.
