Business profile: Dollar General

Categories: 

Dollar General is owned by Marco Larcher and was opened in November 2015.

The store sells a huge array of housewares, toys and craft materials as well as a helium balloon bar with everything you need for a party. There is also a large grocery section with dry and canned goods as well as fresh bread and milk. Dollar General also has a hardware and petfood section.

Mr. Larcher previously owned a body shop closer to Aylmer, operating the business for 19 years.

He says he enjoys running a business in a rural area. "I am not from the city and I don't want to go to the city," he explained. "It's nice to have a business in the community where I live. I opened this store to help the people around. Previously if you wanted something, you needed to go to another town to get it. My prices are comparitive to shops in the city so people can do their groceries here. The store is for the benefit of the community."

Mr. Larcher hopes to begin stocking fresh produce from local growers this year.

Comments

Personally----

--- I was extremely impressed, not just at the quality and variety of products for sale at Dollar General but the caring and thoughtful attitude of Marco Larcher.It is a difficult driveway to access -- only possible from the eastern direction - but I believe Dollar General is worthy of your patronage.

Slippery story: the update

On Monday December 4, a serious accident was caused by some kind of slippery fluid being splashed all over the highway in Luskville. Many people commented on the unexpectedly deep puddles, the effort it took to stay on the road and the horrible stink of it. There was so much, a snow plow was called in to strip it off the road. What was that stuff? Where did it come from? I managed to find someone to talk to from the MTQ within two days. But as yet, my attempts to get information about this incident from the MRC des Collines police have been unproductive.

Once more the Quyon Lions' Club Santa Claus Parade, held Saturday December 9, was a great success. Warmly-dressed families lined the streets to enjoy the decorated floats, horses and of course, St. Nick himself. As the Beach Barn is conspicuously absent this year, the parade's normal route was reversed, with participants gathering at the Ste. Marie's Catholic church parking lot and walking down the hill to the intersection with Clarendon. From there, the parade continued to the Onslow Elementary School gym where hot food and drinks were served as kids lined up to speak to Santa about a few important matters.
