Mouths have been watering since customers learned in January that a Stripling's General Store was coming to Oconee County, and it seems they won't have to wait much longer to sink their teeth into the business's popular beef jerky and sausages. The store, nestled on the corner of US Highway 78 and Ga. Highway 53, is close to opening its doors.
The latest update on Stripling's Facebook Page states, "We are just a week or so away! We are stocking the shelves as we speak. Looking forward to serving the Oconee - Clarke County Area. Look for more postings as we get closer."
In response to customers' inquiries pressing for more details, the store answered Friday, "We are scheduled to open the week of October 29th."
