We need this housewares store by Dollar General in Evansville


There is a new retail store owned by Dollar General which would be a huge hit if they opened a location in Evansville.

We all know people in our lives who enjoy shopping for home decor, seasonal items, crafts, and other home items. Several locations in Evansville carry these items, such as Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, At Home, Michael’s, etc. However, there is another option that has yet to make its way to Evansville, but it should!

Last year, Dollar General announced the opening of a new line of retail stores called “pOpshelf”. The new retail store has approximately 45 locations nationwide, with the closest to Evansville located around Nashville, Tennessee. What is pOpshelf? According to a press release:

This new store aims to engage customers with a fun, affordable and stress-free shopping experience where they can find on-trend seasonal and home décor, health and beauty must-haves, home cleaning products, party favors, entertainment needs and more—with approximately 95% of items priced at $5 or less!

Evansville continues to grow and I feel like this would be another great addition to the Promenade area on Burkhardt Road. I think we all know so many people (maybe even yourself) who would frequent pOpshelf too much if we had a location in Evansville. The company plans to open and operate up to a total of approximately 1,000 stores by the end of fiscal 2025, including approximately 100 additional stores in 2022. So who do we need to talk to to add Evansville to this list of stores?

40 Real Indiana Towns With Quirky, Weird, and Funny Names

Outside of the big cities, Hoosier State is full of tiny little towns that you’ve probably passed through on your way to one of these towns. Most of them are probably between 100 and 150 years old, or even older, and have been around much longer than major metropolitan areas such as Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Evansville. As a rule, they were started by the first settlers who found their way to the state and decided to return home. Eventually others joined in and a community was formed. Over time, as the surrounding areas developed, most of them were incorporated into these areas and governed by the nearest city or county governing body, making them officially “unincorporated”, meaning they did not have their own formally organized municipal government.

A scroll through Wikipedia’s long list of unincorporated communities in Indiana shows that several of them have names that by today’s standards would be considered bizarre, eccentric, or downright funny. These are my 40 favorites.
