    The town of Blackville is a very cozy one. It does not have much of anything, there are three or four gas stations, one grocery store, but there is also a Dollar General and about eight eating establishments. There is a pizza place called Russell's Pizza, it is very great. There are not many places to shop, the only place I have seen clothing is at Dollar General. There is not a lot in Blackville, if someone was hoping to find anything, they would have to go to Barnwell or Williston. There is one grocery store, but they have inconvenient business hours and poor selections.
