Saturday, August 19th (time: 10am – 2pm) – Annual Adopt a Pet Day:  The Western PA Humane Society will be making their annual stop to our store for an on-site adoption clinic.  They will be bring dogs and cats that are up for adoption at that very moment.  If you have been considering adoption and want to find out more about its very rewarding possibilities, be sure to stop by our store and learn how you can adopt your very own furry friend.  All of the animals present will be available for adoption.  Along side the Humane Society, we will also have some local pet food representative here to talk about some of the all natural, and super healthy dog and cat foods that we sell each day.  Many free samples will be available for you to try at home.  Also, raffle items and donations for the Humane Society will be accepted.

 


 Notable Past Events

7/15/17 – Big Green Egg Demo Day (+Yeti cooler raffle) – 11 am to 2 pm:  We were grilling pizzas for about 3 hours.  We hope you had a chance to stop by and to get a look at the Big Green Egg in action.  Recap:  The pizzas from the grill were as tasty as ever.  Doug was a one-man kitchen outside, rolling out the pizza doughs, sprinkling the toppings, and baking them in the oven.  The Big Green Egg creates a create convection baking enviroment with the addition of its ConvEggtor accessory that deflects all of the heat to the edges and prevents burning of the crust.  Pizzas are one of our favorite items to cook on the Big Green Egg, and we hope that you were able to enjoy some of our creations.  Plus our big Yeti cooler raffle winner was picked.  As you might expect, the winner was very elated.  Thanks to all of those that stopped by for this fun day!

6/4/17 – The Peach Truck – 8 am to 10 am:  The Peach Truck returned to our store for just one visit during 2017.  These delicious Georgia Peaches were plucked from trees just days ago, and then rushed North for sale by the box!  They are tree-ripe and super delicious.  For more information on the Peach Truck, please visit their website.  Recap:  The lines were long and the skies were cloudy, but there were smiles all around as people waited in line for these Georgia peaches.  The bad winter wiped out 90% of the farm’s freestone peaches, so the clean-stone peach was the offering this year!  We hope that you were able to stop by this year and join us on this special day.

5/29/17 – Memorial Day Hot Dog Sale:  Immediately following the South Hills Memorial Day Association’s parade, we will have fresh, hot grilled hot dogs and cold drinks available for just $2.00.  100% of the money was donated to The Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing adapted smart homes, home modifications, mobility devices, and adapted vehicles to wounded heroes and their families.  Recap:  All 500 grilled hot dogs sold and with your generous donations, we were able to raise $1000 for The Gary Sinise Foundation.  We thank everyone that was able to stop by and make this great event a success once again!  We look forward to keeping this tradition alive year after year.

4/1/17 – Complimentary Paint Color Consultation:  PPG color consultant and interior designer, Dee Dubell, stopped by to offer her expertise totally free of charge.  Recap:  We had a great turnout and all those who came were able to spend time with Dee.  Questions were answered and suggestions were provided.  We hope that those who attended found her advise helpful!  For more information on Dee and her services, please check out her website: http://www.ddubelldesigns.com/
