Opening in 2005, ALCO Discount Store has been serving our community for the past eight years. With 217 stores in 23 different states across the midwest, ALCO specializes in providing a superior selection of essential products for everyday life in small-town America. ALCO specifically targets expansion in smaller communities like Leon with limited access to other retail stores with hopes to offer these towns more convenient shopping.

As ALCO works to “provide convenient, friendly, small-town service,” they try to always offer the best customer service and try their best to make all of their customers happy. ALCO store manager, Beth Zeiss ensures the community that she has “the best employees in town,” and she takes a lot of pride in the dedication of each and every one of her employees that work for her. Serving as operations manager is Carol Proctor, and Donna Rohrbach as the softlines manager.

However, ALCO’s dedication to their customers doesn’t just stop in the aisles; they also donate to many different school and community events and organizations throughout the year.

ALCO offers many specialized products and services that people cannot get anywhere else in town. Something that they would really like their customers to know is that they match ads from other stores, and can also special order any items that are in the ALCO ad but are not usually carried on the shelf. This way, you never need to go out of town to get any of your basic necessities.

ALCO offers their customers a wide variety of products at reasonable prices. Some of their quality merchandise include apparel and shoes, candy and food, crafts, electronics, hardware, health and beauty aids, housewares, jewelry, lawn and garden, pet supplies, sporting goods, stationary, and toys, as well as many other things.

We would like to thank everyone at ALCO for all of their hard work and dedication to our community. We are very fortunate to have ALCO here serving us with multiple needs that we would normally need to go out of town for otherwise. We are excited for many more years of success for ALCO Stores in Leon.
