Yoakum General Store - Open for Business
Jackie Boswell and the owners of the Yoakum General Store accept a $50,000 ceremonial grant check from Mayor Annie Rodriguez and board members of the Yoakum Economic Development Corporation (YEDC). Located south of downtown, the rehabilitated building was originally feed store. “We plan to celebrate our Grand Opening”, said Boswell, “when we open our lumberyard in a few months”. The Yoakum General Store is open Monday through Friday 7:30am – 5:30pm, and Saturday 7:30am – 3pm. The YEDC offers a variety of matching grants for Yoakum businesses and downtown property owners.
