A family-owned discount store is now operating at 2113 Cedar Street, McKenzie. Ted and Pam Hurt of Martin opened Discount Dollar on January 27 after relocating the store from Martin.

Ted and Pam operated the store in Martin for just over three years before deciding to locate in McKenzie. Pam works at the Department of Human Services call center in McKenzie, so the store's location in McKenzie helps with the family's daily commute.

Mr. Hurt is a native of Bruceton and worked at H.I.S. in Bruceton and Tiptonville, where he was in management before the manufacturer closed.

"We have a little bit of everything," said Ted. He noted the store has name-brand and generic merchandise. All are quality products, noted Mr. Hurt. Merchandise includes party items, cosmetics, shoes, household items, and everyday essentials.

"Customers are enjoying the discount prices, especially on the shoes," said Mr. Hurt.

Store hours are 9:00 a.m to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Patrons can expect friendly, personal service and to be greeted as they enter the store.

During a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, April 7, Mayor Jill Holland welcomed the new business and offered assistance where possible. The Hurts said they are thrilled to be in McKenzie.
