New general store opens in Bedford

Special to The Trimble Banner
Poppy’s General Store, located on the south end of Bedford on Hwy. 42W beside the Trimble County Public Library, is open and ready for business!
A sense of relief filled the air Saturday as customers entered the long-awaited opening of a new grocery store in Trimble County. After the Country Store on the courthouse square closed its doors a few years ago, local residents were forced to drive over 30 miles for their groceries. The staff of the new store is eager to serve the community.
