The DeSoto Parish Chamber of Commerce went to Stonewall on Tuesday at noon to conduct the opening of two businesses. Stonewall Tax Title and License and American National Insurance Granger Agency share offices along US 171.
First up was the ribbon cutting for the Granger Agency (the red ribbon). Then it was time to cut the purple ribbon for Stonewall Tax Title and License.
Ashley Bartels of Stonewall Tax Title and License has been working for over a year to get the authorization to become a public tag agency. She can perform most of the tasks that are done at the DMV, except the wait many people experience there. Bartels was excited with her grand opening. She said “I’ve been meeting many people and I am happy to be able to help them.”
While the dual grand opening was taking place the Journal noted several customers came in to conduct business with the tag agency or the insurance agency. There also was a good turnout from the local business and government community to welcome these two businesses to Stonewall.
