Pierce Reviews

I have lived here all my life (19 years) and I have always (and will always) love this place. We have a Dollar General now, so we can get some groceries there. Also, Norfolk is about 15 miles away, so if you need to go shopping, it is nearby. We have plenty of gas stations, convenient stores, and churches as well. It is a great place to raise a family. Everyone is very welcoming.

Pierce is where I grew up. I would definitely move back. Love this town. I wish every town was as welcoming as this one.
Good Town just moved here. Everyone seems really nice when I go for walks and see others in the area at the local gas station.
