He said Dillard’s will donate 10 percent of sales to the Vicksburg Main Street program.

“Any time we can support the community it’s a win win for everyone,” he said.

Kim Hopkins, director of the Vicksburg Main Street program said, “Clustering stores is a good thing because people like to park, walk and have a variety of choices. It will be one-stop shopping this holiday season in downtown Vicksburg.”
