Business is off to a great start for Jenise Barns, owner of GG’s Mini Mart in Gladys. She opened the shop at the end of December.

“Business has been great, and it’s growing,” she commented. She held a grand opening event on January 29.

Barns, an alumna of William Campbell Combined School, manages the store herself. She stocks standard convenience store items, lottery tickets, and a gaming machine.

Her nephew, Donte Moorman, is the cook for the kitchen at GG’s Mini Mart. He offers a diverse menu of breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. The house specialties include Philly cheese steaks, fish, and chicken. Large orders of chicken for catering are available.

The kitchen is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The store’s hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m
