FLORENCE – The Shoals Chamber of Commerce welcomed another new business to our area Friday, Yazoo Trading Company. Yazoo is a new part of Fred’s Dollar Stores. Normally, when the Chamber holds one of these events, we see a big blue ribbon being cut… But not today! Instead, the folks broke out a “1 by 8″ and cut in half with a hand saw! A fitting touch for a hardware store. The Yazoo Trading Company is located at 2950 Cloverdale Road, Florence.
Here’s what Yazoo Trading Company had to say about themselves:
