That’s a pretty bold statement to make as the title of a post especially when it is so obviously self serving and biased, right? Well… we think that it is true, and a lot of customers that come in our stores say the same thing.

Our power equipment store in Alpharetta has been open for over a month now, and things have been great, but we’re planning a party next weekend. Can you come?
We are very excited to announce that we now have one more option that will help our customers get the products and supplies that they want from one of our stores.
The True Value Discover Card has some amazing benefits that we know our loyal customers will appreciate.
It looks like we may be done with the cold weather. This weekend we literally will spring forward into spring with the time change, and with it, hopefully we can turn our eyes to the work in the yard.
There is so much about our new store in Alpharetta that we want to show off. When we took occupency of the building, we were able to dream a lot about how we wanted this new power equipment store to be. We wanted to make our team more efficient. We wanted the space to be better used.
We wanted to do everything we could to speed the transaction up, so that we could help get our customers in and out, so that they could get back to their work and ultimately back to their families.
The secret is out. We are now an authorized YETI® Cooler dealer. Our Oakwood and Duluth stores, which have been selling Big Green Egg and Traeger grills like crazy, decided to give the best cooler ever made a try. We think it will be a great complement to the premium brand names we sell.
I know what each of you were thinking this morning as you pulled back the curtain and saw the massive amount of snow that we got in Atlanta and North Georgia overnight. You immediately began to wonder if you had enough bread and milk in the house to hold your family through until you could get to the store again. You consciously decided to delay your commute by 2 hours so that you could avoid the terrible Atlanta drivers and their inability to drive in snow and on ice.
I was thinking about Ventrac compact tractors and their ability to remove snow.
Here’s an interesting article and video that STIHL shared today on their website. Many of STIHL’s products are clearly the standard in the outdoor power industry, which makes them a target for counterfeit products both domestically and abroad.

If you hang out with me very long, especially if we get together to eat, you’ll quickly find out that I am a picky eater. I always have been. Growing up I wasn’t forced, like many, to “eat my vegetables,” so it wasn’t until I started getting serious with my then girlfriend and now wife that I got adventurous with my dinner plate. Eating at her parents’ house changed that. I still don’t eat a ton of veggies, but because of them, and her, I do make attempts from time to time with new varieties of food.
All this being said, I actually have an itch to try my hand at some gardening. My father-in-law has a large garden that he works each year, and we get a lot of food from it. I admire the amount of effort he puts into it. I know that there is no way that I would ever be able to take care of all the plants that he does, but I still have that itch. I want to get my hands dirty and work the soil and see the return on sweat investment. Even though I probably wouldn’t eat most of the produce we grow, the challenge and reward for effort is appealing. So, I’ve done some research on how I can create a small but successful garden in my suburban Atlanta backyard. I’m gonna try it out this year. Maybe I can inspire you to, also.
