CHEROKEE COUNTY — 'SWEETHEART OF A DEAL'
Are you a concrete tomato aficionado? Good for you. Us, too. The Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce is still offering a discounted — $200 — price for its concrete 'maters through Feb. 14, Valentine Day.
After Feb. 14, the $250 standard price tag will reassert itself. So check in at the Chamber at (903) 586-2217 if you are interested.
GRAND OPENING IN ALTO
REpurpose. REcycle. REsell. REjoice. So states the mantra of "Roadrunner's Resale," located in the old Tin Lizzie's building at 197 W. San Antonio Street in Alto.
This resale shop offers a variety of "man junk," antiques, collectibles, furniture, and several gently-used items, according to a release from the company. The store is now open for consignments.
The new business, owned by Tina and Wayne Bobbitt, conducted its grand opening and ribbon cutting celebration about a week ago Saturday. The Alto Chamber of Commerce was out in full force to welcome them to town.
Question: Do you wish to recycle or re-purpose such items? Then this shop is for you.
The owners are pros at this. They have been 'junking' (didn't realize that was an actual verb) for roughly 30 years.
Roadrunner's Resale is open Wednesday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
