MORRIS -- Some community members in Morris are furious.

"We have a gas station and a pizza place and a restaurant and a couple package stores. And I don't think, I don't think a business like that is supportive here," said Morris resident Delina Frenette.

Frenette and several residents have been complaining about the new Dollar General store coming into town in a few months. They feel it will ruin the feel of their small town.

"It's very unnecessary," said Kadie Renna, a Morris resident. "They're ruining the Earth. All the trees were just taken down. It hurts my heart to see this happening."

Town leaders said the convenience store passed all the legal steps to build in town. Now, residents say they will boycott the store until a change is made.
