fter 25 years of serving the readers and advertisers of our community – indeed, almost 1,300 weekly issues without fail, The Coweta Shopper has the following announcement to make: We took a week off! And we loved it! Moreover, we’ll be “on holiday”, as the Britts say, for one week each quarter this year. And I suspect we’ll be taking these weeks off during the company’s next quarter of a century, too. (Or until I’m able to quit working, whichever comes first!)

Our society is now well into a new era. Ideas and communication are moving fast – needs and interests are different from a decade ago. Savvy, successful businesses are using new ideas and technology to meet the requirements of a more sophisticated consumer. Will The Shopper be a part of this new mentality? You bet we will! Beginning January 8, The Coweta Shopper will be mailed to 48,000 separate homes and businesses consisting of 4 weekly issues (12,000 each), scattered throughout the county. This will enable our loyal advertisers to reach a good sampling of our community each week and still focus on either east or west of I-85. We are also just about ready to launch our new web site, which will feature specials sales, money-saving coupons, a classified page and more. You’ll be able to see upcoming events and announcements on our community calendar as well as “how to” tips and special features on individuals and businesses in Coweta County. So, we will soon have the best of both – a traditional paper mailed directly to your home, as well as an exciting new website including Facebook and Twitter. And we will be our community’s only provider of this particular media combination. So, our mission is simple – “To connect the citizens of Coweta with the best products and services offered here, and do so in an interesting, informative and encouraging way.” Thank you, Coweta, for letting us serve you during this first 25 of our many years to come.

Links to sinks: Stroud makes transition from golf pro to ReStore By Joey Howard, The Coweta Shopper Forgive Chris Stroud for the occasional golf analogy. After all, professional golf was his dream and passion. It all changed almost a year ago. Now, Stroud calls the Newnan-Coweta Habitat For Humanity ReStore his new passion. He was named Store Manager last October. “They tease me a lot,” Stroud says of his staff when he fires off a golf-ism. “I had made some huge changes (in the store). I said, well I’m trying to hit a hole-in-one here, I’m not trying to four-putt.” Whether or not his staff got the analogy is up for debate. Not up for question is the desire Stroud has in Chris Stroud making The ReStore a differencemaker in the Coweta County community. Stroud was a Professional Golf Association member ... a PGA A1 Professional or as in layman’s terms a golf club’s pro. “I was in the golf business and ran a pro shop that did $100,000 a year in sales,” Stroud recalls. “Ran a business with the golf and everything that did $1 million.” Stroud had indeed spent much of the last six years at Durham Lakes Country Club in Fairburn and the Governors Towne Club in Acworth as their respective golf pro. It was at the Governors Towne Club where he got the call. “It was a $50,000 initiation and $450 a month. It was high-end... probably too high-end,” Stroud said. “The owner called me on a Monday and said ‘Chris, the bank took over the property’.” And just that quick, the golf career that Stroud had always dreamed of was gone. The Newnan High graduate then found his way to the NCHFH ReStore. “I never thought I’d be in a non-profit,” he said. “I’ve been very skeptical of non-profits in the past. But since I’ve been here, I’ve seen the books and I see where the money is going. It gives me more confidence and appreciation for the Habitat For Humanity because they truly do put their money back where they say they do.”
Starting Feb. 1, the ReStores operation hours will be Wednesday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. you see all the Mercedes and BMWs that we get out here. People are just trying to find a diamond in the rough.” Of course, the main mission of Newnan-Coweta Habitat For Humanity is to build homes for families dreaming of homeownership. Since its start in 1994, NCHFH has built 70-plus homes here in Coweta County. And 100-percent of sales generated at The ReStore goes toward building homes where about $70,000 is needed for each home constructed. So to increase sales, Stroud’s strategy is to go after donations. “Absolutely, donations are where it’s at,” he said. “Without donations and good things in the store, it doesn’t matter how many customers we have. For this store to grow sales and donations, then where I need to go is after the business community here in Newnan and Coweta County. I firmly believe if we get quality donations, customers will be here. I have no doubt. And I think our business community will support our store.” One asset Stroud and the ReStore have at their dis-
“Jack’s retired from the appliance industry and he is phenomenal,” Stroud said. “He’s the reason we can offer a 90-day warranty on our appliances and they are generally half the price of retail. That’s pretty solid.” “You know, when I first started here, the place looked like a flea market. I want it to be a store. I want The ReStore to be an option before someone goes to Home Depot or Lowe’s.” And just to go full circle and back to the golf analogy, Stroud does have one hole-in-one to his credit. He says it was in 2001 at the Fairfield Plantation in Villa Rica. He aced a Par-3, 185-yard hole with a 6-iron. But that is in the distant past. His mission is to fulfill dreams of families. “I, myself, have only been to one house blessing,” he said. “It is absolutely amazing to give somebody the keys to a home.” And certainly, NCHFH and the Coweta community hope more dreams of families become a reality. •••••••••••••••
Now it is Stroud’s job to take the Newnan store on Pine Road and grow it in sales and donations.
NOTES - Stroud has initiated new Winter Hours for The ReStore. Presently, hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Beginning February 1, operation hours will be Wednesday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Also beginning February 1, free pickup of large items will be offered Monday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Presently, pickups are offered Tuesday-Saturday at the same time.
The one eye-opener for Stroud since his arrival at the ReStore - the always moving landscape. “The way the store changes everyday, that’s been the biggest surprise,” Stroud said. “We get different donations, different volunteers and their needs and demands change on a daily basis. It’s just the daily diversity.”
• Volunteers are always needed at The ReStore. Volunteer Orientation is every Wednesday and Saturday at 10 a.m. Anyone interested in volunteering needs to simply call 770-252-4061 to reserve a spot in the Volunteer Orientation.
“We get washers and dryers, Christmas ornaments, just about everything under the sun.” Another surprise, the diversity of customers. “We have our treasure hunters that come here, and those that simply can’t afford to go to Home Depot or Lowe’s,” Stroud said. “Then I’m blown away when

66.02 INCHES IN 2013
Metro Atlanta records 5th-highest rainfall total in 135 years
Did you think the calendar year 2013 was a little “wet” in the Metro Atlanta area? If you did, you certainly have some impressive rainfall facts to back it up. The National Weather Service says 2013 ranked as the 5th “Wettest Year” since recording such rainfall amounts began in 1878. All total, this area received 66.02 inches of rain in the last 12 months.
The all-time Atlanta record for rainfall in one year is 71.45 inches, that coming in 1948. The No. 2 total was in 2009 (69.43), No. 3 in 1929 (67.71) and No. 4 in 1936 (66.15). By comparison, Macon posted its wettest year in history at 72.91 inches which bettered the old mark (1929) by 5.11 inches. Columbus recorded its 6th wettest year at 62.65 inches and Athens’ total of 59.89 ranked 15th.

“Conditioning Tips” Take a clean container of fresh water to put ﬂowers in when cutting. Think about the size and shape and length you need for your arrangement before you cut. Prune shrubs carefully. Cut in the late evening or in the early morning — not at mid-day. Avoid tender new growth as it is very difﬁcult to condition. Gently wash and clean the plant materials and remove damaged leaves and spent blooms. Cut ends on a slant and place in a clean container of cool water for several hours or overnight. Don’t have any foliage below the water line. Greenery can usually be completely submerged to soak — not grey or hairy leaves. Break the ends of chrysanthemums. Lightly burn the ends of poinsettias. Boil the cut ends of hydrangeas a few seconds — then soak up to their necks. Add ﬂoral preservative to the water according to directions (and soak the oasis in it too if using to arrange). A tiny bit of bleach and a little sugar can be substituted — or a little listerine.

OPENING SPRING 2014
Pennsylvania-based Ollie’s to open store on Bullsboro Drive in Newnan Story by Joey Howard, The Coweta Shopper
The remodeling project of the vacated Kmart building on Bullsboro Drive now has a new tenant attached to it. That tenant is Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, headquartered in Harrisburg, Pa. Ollie’s Bargain Outlet will be one of four stores the 32-year-old company is opening in Georgia in 2014. The Newnan location will be in the Kroger Shopping Center and located at 56 Bullsboro Drive, next to Aaron’s. Store hours will be Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. when the Newnan outlet opens in the early spring. Other Ollie’s Bargain Outlet openings in Georgia this year will be in Carrollton, Rome and Duluth. Ollie’s is one of America’s largest retailers, according to its website – olliesbargainoutlet.com – with 154 stores in 14 states. Generally, the stores range in size from 28,000 to 35,000 sq.ft. And the philosophy Ollie’s exudes is no frills, bargain prices, semi-lovely stores and a fun shopping environment. The product range features 19 merchandise categories, including hardware, books and stationery, carpet, domestics, food, toys and seasonal goods. And Ollie’s cites its concept’s success due to a loyal customer base and tremendous growth, increasing from 17 stores in 1999 to its 154 total entering 2014. The Ollie’s website states customers will find lots of famous, brand-name goods in every department,

like housewares from Rubbermaid, Mirro, Ekco and Anchor Hocking, toys from Mattel, or sporting goods from Igloo. Its buyers look for closeouts, overstocks, package changes, manufacturer refurbs and irregulars. Ollie’s stores are designed in a warehouse format with bright colors and excellent lighting to promote a friendly shopping environment. Products are displayed on pallets and moveable fixtures according to their product category and department. The company’s first store opened in 1982 at Mechanicsburg, Pa., and its second store later that year in Harrisburg. The mantra – “Good Stuff Cheap” – is still used today.
