That’s in west Knoxville. The worse places for it are in east and north Knoxville. I worked in a store on Whittle Springs at night about 25 years ago. Everybody who worked there carried. I’d say that the store in this article won’t be seeing any thugs anytime soon LOL. I’ve noticed the Dollar General in east Knoxville hasn’t been robbed lately either.
