Mount Vernon Reviews

3 reviews
I live in a little city called Mt. Vernon where we dont have much. We have two hardware stores and one is and old family ran business that has been there for as long as i can remember. We have a food for less, but the name has been change 3 times since i been born. We have two gas stations a Cheveron and a Exon. At one point we had 3 but for some reason they closed the other one, and at one point we had 1 because they closed the Cheveron down for having rats. There is one barber shop and one beauty salon. We also have a new dollar store

There are barely any jobs in my city. Food for less is a good place to work, but its hard to catch them when they are hiring. Many people had jobs at searcy mental hospital but the governer shut that down leaving people jobless like my own mother.
There are no nearby restaurants. We have to travel at least 28 miles to Mobile just to have go out to eat at a good restaurant.
