Dear Editor,

Several months ago I wrote a letter addressing the concerns of shoppers safety due to a very dark parking lot at the Dollar General Store. I also compared the no lights there, to the lighting of the Piggly Wiggly and the Family Dollar Store across the street. While mentioning that several of us that had safety concerns, did not shop at the Dollar General after it gets dark.

But, I am writing tonight to say to the Manager of the Dollar General Store of Union Springs, and whomever else is responsible for the new lights on in the parking lot, tonight. Speaking on behalf of those of us that sometime needs to or wants to shop after dark, a great BIG THANK YOU.

I was passing by tonight and to my surprise, I saw a very bright parking lot. I turned into the parking lot, and shopped with my grand baby, because I needed to and felt safe to do so. Thanks again for putting lights on the light posts. They are bright and needed.

A Concerned Citizen,

Betty Hudson Sanders
