5/17/14 and 5/24/14 – PPG Voice of Color 2014 Launch:  Join us on these two Saturdays for a special paint color event.  On hand to answer your color questions will be Dee Schlotter, Brand Manager of PPG Paints, and other color consultants (ASID interior designers).  Bring in pictures or colors from your room and let one of the interior designers at our store help you with choosing some colors.  Take home a quart sample or some color chips to be on the fast track to a new space!  It is amazing how the right color can pull everything together in a room.  Even better yet, the event is FREE for everyone. Recap:  Thanks to all that joined us on the past two Saturdays.  We were pleased to see all of those that attended.  So many did, there were individuals waiting in line to speak to a PPG color expert!  Those that attended were able to go 1-on-1 with professional interior designers and took home some great ideas on room colors to get them started on the right track to a new fresh look!

4/26/14 – Jonathan Green and the New American Lawn:  An educational day filled with a bunch of questions and answers.  Recap: The President of the Jonathan Green company helped customers in our lawn and garden department throughout the afternoon and provided us all with some great information!  The New American Lawn program is a new and improved way to look at lawn care, by focusing on the causes of a problem lawn, rather than just the symptoms.  Stop in to our store to learn more, or visit the Jonathan Green website.

March thru October 2013 - Jonathan Green Lawn Photo Contest:  Jonathan Green helped sponsor a photo contest for our customers the summer.  Thanks to all that participated and congratulations to those that won $50 gift certificates to our store!  Not everyone could have been so lucky, but Jonathan Green was encouraged by the response and enjoyed seeing all your furry friends posing for a picture on your lawn!  Sad to think that winter will soon be here and our lawns will be out of commission.
