GOLINDA, TX — The Golinda Country store has worked even harder the last few weeks, the family-owned and run crew is now thanking the community for their support.

As a local business in an even smaller town, the crew learns to do every job.

"The side, the corner the back the front we all work it all. At first, it's challenging until you understand it then it's simple," employee, Shawna Switzer said.

Even if they have to be 6 feet apart, the Golinda Country Store has enjoyed seeing all the regulars and new faces stop by to support.

"You got locals that say hey ya know what I like going there, they're, nice they're friendly they cut up with ya and people like that," Wolff said.
