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

We all know people in our life that loves shopping for home decor, seasonal items, crafts, and other home goods. There are several places in Evansville that offer these items such as Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, At Home, Michael's, and more. However, there is another option out there that has yet to make its way to Evansville, but it should!

Last year, Dollar General announced that they would be opening a new line of retail stores called "pOpshelf". The new retail store has around 45 locations nationwide, with the closest ones 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 supplies, party goods, entertaining needs and much more—with approximately 95 percent of items priced at $5 or less!


Evansville is ever-growing and I feel like this would make for 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 way 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 2025 fiscal year-end, including approximately 100 additional stores in 2022. So, who do we need to talk to about adding Evansville to that list of stores?

Check out a little sample of what pOpshelf has to offer in the gallery below:

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

Outside the major cities, the Hoosier state is full of tiny little towns you've probably passed through on your way to one of those cities. Most of them are likely 100 to 150 years old, or older, and have been around far longer than the large metropolitan areas such as Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Evansville. Typically, they were started by early settlers who found their way to the state and decided to make it home. Eventually, others would join them, and a community was formed. Over time, as the surrounding areas grew, most of them were folded into those areas and governed by the nearest city or county's governing body officially making them "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 several of them have names that by today's standards would be considered weird, quirky, or just downright right funny. These are my 40 favorities.
