"We've got plenty of capacity for lots of items across the state. We just need more business, we need more activity," Zook said.

The company stocked a corner of the store with items made in Arkansas, including tortilla chips, bread, peanut butter, ice cream, paper products, beauty items, frozen dinners and other goods.

"You could make a pretty good meal," Zook said. "I don't see any utensils, though."
