Dollar General in Bluffton

Dollar General is a large American retail chain that specializes in selling inexpensive food and household items. Most of them are located in stand-alone buildings on the outskirts of small towns or in impoverished areas of large cities. This one is unusual in that is it located in a storefront in the 'downtown' business district of a small town. The store is on Market Street, west of Main Street (State Road 1), in Bluffton, Indiana.

The building has an interesting history. Barely visible at the top of the facade is engraved lettering that says: "Home of Morris Stores." Morris 5 & 10 Stores was a variety store chain founded in Bluffton in 1903. At its peak, Morris had seventy-one locations in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio. The company was bought by another Midwestern variety store chain, G.C. Murphy, in 1951.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
