New business opens in Mathiston

By Terry Harpole

In the last few weeks, still another new business has opened in Mathiston on Highway 82.

Gwen Shurden, who is no stranger to the people in the area, or to plants, has opened her place, called Gwen’s Plants and More.

Miss Gwen’s business is located on Highway 82 west of Mathiston in the building that was formerly Fatco. This new business will feature many kinds of tomato plants, in addition to other vegetables and flower plants.

On the inside, you will find work gloves, even for the ladies, and many other things. All her plants are Mississippi grown and fresh looking.

For all those people interested in gardening and yard work, it would be worth the time to go and look at all she has, including new rose bushes ready to set out.

The telephone number, for those wishing to call ahead, is 263-7240.

Miss Gwen has opened this business just in time for people who will be raising gardens and doing yard work this spring and summer.
