It’s been a slow start at the new Hickory Farms store so far, but the store is open and back selling their products, such as meat and cheese boxes and various sweets.
They have been open since November 12 in their new location on the Northwest Bypass.
They only have one person on shift most days with how slow it’s been, but are expecting a busy Black Friday and will have at least four employees to handle the workload on that day.
Employee Toni Coster said they only got one shipment of product and expects to sell out quick once Friday rolls around and things pick up.
“It’s been a little slow. I’m hoping for it to pick up hopefully with word of mouth and Facebook advertising," Coster said. "Most of the time, by the middle of December each year, we’re usually sold out and once stuff is gone, it's gone.”

- Mon - Fri: 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
