Public Discussion

Posted: 08/19/19
Dear Friends and Neighbors:  The Jacksonville General Store in an important part of our community.  We are hoping to get your input and ideas about how to make it better for you.
 
The current owners of the Jacksonville General Store have been actively attempting to sell the store and building.  It is hopeful that a suitable buyer will step in and carry on the tradition of the local store that has been the heart of Jacksonville Village for many years.
 
Meanwhile, a small informal group of residents have gathered to think of ways that the community can help support the success and longevity of the store's operations.  Several possibilities could be considered in addition to having a new private owner.  As an example, some other communities have created a cooperative membership structure that ultimately controls and operates the business.
 
The ultimate goal is to gather support to ensure that the Jacksonville General Store remains a vibrant and successful local resource.  You can help by joining us for a public discussion on Tuesday, September 24th at 6:30pm at the Whitingham Municipal Center in Jacksonville.
