The winter weather has done more than affect the roads and school closings. We’ve seen dramatic price changes on products that people need to stay comfortable. Products like ice melt and heaters have been scarce and other products like Propane and Kerosene have been greatly affected by demand not only here in Atlanta and North Georgia, but in the rest of the country as well.

True Value Bargains of the Month – February 2014

Are you still in shock from the Ice Jam that happened last week? Still in shock from the way the Seahawks beat up on Payton Manning and the Broncos last night?

By the way… we talk a lot about the amazing design of STIHL products, but even their web designer is purposeful with the ‘captcha’ selection for the submission form. I love that they’re using keywords that are relevant to their product mix vs having random and meaningless phrases on their site! If you’re a geek like me, you’ll hit refresh and see that they used words such as ‘STIHL’, ‘TRIMMER’, ‘SAW’, and ‘BLOWER’


A Random Carhartt Meetup in Moscow, Russia

Doug Howard is in Moscow this week with his church and he just sent me this picture.

Carhartt Coat in Russia


Doug (left) met a missionary over there named Jeff (right) who was wearing a Carhartt jacket. It just so happens that Jeff bought that jacket at our Oakwood, Georgia store a few years ago when he was in Gainesville on furlough.

Gainesville, Georgia to Moscow, Russia is a little over 5300 miles by the way!

Totally random and totally cool.

By the way, Carhartt has been in business 125 years this year! That’s awesome. There will be some really cool things coming this year. We’re proud to be a Carhartt authorized dealer in Duluth and Oakwood. Serving Atlanta, North East Georgia… and the world!
