Prices higher than other local chain store. And watch out for sale items that ring up at register higher than posted signs. This has happened to me quite frequently. UPDATE: On April 28, 2016 the store celebrated a grand re-opening after extensive modernization and complete remodeling of the store. There have been efforts to keep prices lower in recent months after new ownership by Southeastern Grocers LLC. It will be interesting to see how service and prices improves as they contemplate the opening of a big box grocery competitor in town in May.

In 1937, the north wing of the Sears school was brought to LaBelle and became the Daniels School, in Fordson Park subdivision developed by M.J. Meckler of Tampa in 1926 during the Florida real estate boom. (The community of Sears was developed in 1925 south of LaBelle as a lumber producing town for Sears and Roebuck's mail order houses.) The school at one time was called the Public Industrial School (probably in the 1970s.)

The Barron Library has become a welcome center for computer and internet access by the residents and visitors to LaBelle in recent years. The dozen or so computers are usually occupied most of the time, while not so many people are seen reading books in the well maintained stacks of book and magazines at LaBelle's only library. It's located on the Caloosahatchee River at the foot of the bridge and across Bridge Street from Baron Park making it a convenient location for a few hours or study or relaxation.
