Where has the summer gone? It seems that we were just putting out swimwear and sandals and hoping for the right weather to come our way. Here we are now in the middle of a “Summer Clearance” throughout the store with many great bargains still available throughout the store. You have responded very positively to our revamped Bedding Department and our expanded Stationary, Book and Food areas and we thank you for that support. The new additions within the women’s apparel category have also proved to be winners and we look forward to continuing to add new items and fashion to our mix of basics.

In June, Shelley Hounsell-Brown, joined us as our new Sales Manager and has fit right in. Next time you stop in be sure to say hi, without a doubt you will be greeted with a smile and a helping hand if needed. To our Shareholders, please note that the Annual Meeting is coming up shortly and will be held on Tuesday, August 25th at 6 pm. Emails have been sent as well as packets by mail with all the details, please contact the store if we somehow missed you on the list.

We will continue to encourage you to make suggestions, comments and offer feedback as you visit and shop with us.  Your comments and suggestions can always be sent to us at It is through these positive exchanges that we will continue to grow and improve. We do listen and whenever possible we make every effort to implement these changes throughout the store.  Like us on Facebook as we use this site to update events and merchandise on a regular basis. At this time we have well over 1000 “likes” and encourage you to join us there. Please continue to “check in” on our site under the “What’s New” tab – as we look to add updates here as well. Much has happened this year and much continues to happen as we move forward. As we like to say:     “Did you know”?
