We are growing!
It may be one of the best kept secrets (or worst kept, depending on who you ask or know)… but we are excited to officially announce that we are opening our fourth location in Alpharetta, Georgia.
That’s right! We are gonna be very busy over the next couple months getting our Alpharetta store prepared for business. We will have the official Grand Opening the beginning of next year, but we just could not wait anymore to start talking about the details.
Howard Brothers is very well known and respected in the outdoor power equipment world. Ask any commercial landscaper in Atlanta where they buy their mower or 2-cycle equipment, and you’ll likely hear them respond “Howard Brothers.” We’ve been looking to open a location in the Alpharetta market for a long time, and the opportunity opened up a few months ago.
“Howard Brothers only represents top lines in the industry. We believe in partnering with the best and most reliable brands that our customers need and want so that they can be more successful,” says owner John Howard.
The new location will be our first Outdoor Power Equipment ONLY location. While Howard’s has been known as a hardware store since 1955, this store will only have equipment sales, parts and service. (That being said, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll find a small selection of ‘hardware’ supplies that our commercial landscaping customers require.)
“It is an incredible market for us to move into,” says Tim Oliver, Howard Brothers, OPE General Manager. “In addition to our existing landscape customers in the area, we are equally excited about the huge number of homeowners in the area. Alpharetta and the surrounding cities of Milton, John’s Creek, Cumming, Sandy Springs, and Roswell will be able to easily get to us.”
“Our vendor support has been great,” says Owner, Doug Howard. “They know how serious we are about our long term commitment to delivering the difference in sales, parts and service. They are each asking what they can do to help make this store a huge success on day one and beyond.”
Over the next few weeks we will be releasing some more information, pictures and videos that will explain more of what you can expect from Howard Brothers in Alpharetta. We will also be introducing the team who will be operating the Alpharetta store. But first, here’s a small tease about the size of the sales floor. Currently, we’re tackling the floor. The 3 layer epoxy seal is gonna look amazing.
Our new store will be located at 5860 Gateway Drive (directly across the street from Slope’s BBQ). This is very near the intersection of Hwy 9 and McFarland Road. 2012 has been a great year for us and we look forward to 2013 being better.
