Local Businesses

I’ve got another thought coming tomorrow, but for today I just want to point out a few local businesses that have done well serving me in some way over the last month or so:

(click on these links)
David Pitts Properties – sponsored my under 6 soccer team. David’s son was on the team so this just worked out great and I’m glad to have a new friend. He grew up in Dalton, GA so we have some things in common (I lived there about 7 yrs before going to college). David is a great guy who has a passion for helping people with all types of property needs – getting in a house, getting rid of a house, financing a house, etc. I’m keeping David Pitts Properties in mind for when I am ready to make some property deals.

Ideal Family Health – Shane Purcell is mine and Shawna’s new doctor. He goes to our church so we already liked him. But he is He doesn’t take insurance – thus allowing him to charge fair prices and be affordable for healthy people like us who never benefit from insurance because we rarely even meet the deductible. He gives us sound advice in OUR best interest.

Hetrick Locksmith Service – George Hetrick is a great guy, does a wide range of locksmith services, AAA Roadside Service # 2229 (you can ask for him when you call AAA in the local area), he takes Visa & Mastercard. A note on other locksmiths: It sucks when you get a locksmith who only takes cash and you don’t have enough on you at the moment. Also, I’ve run in to another locksmith here in town who has an employee that is rude and I think dishonest. I think he pulls the “cash only” policy so he can over-price the service and then pocket some of the money without his boss knowing it. If the price was just five or ten dollars more I wouldn’t have questioned it, but the guy charged me $60 for a service Hetrick only charged $25 for. That was a while back, but I don’t forget it when I feel like I’ve been taken. Go with the honest and fair locksmith – George Hetrick – 24hr Locksmith Service.

Dillard’s Trophy Shoppe – Did the trophies for my under 6 soccer team. They were very patient with me (this was my first trophy buying experience) and helped me find the best solution to meet the need.

Fuddruckers – is where we had our soccer awards dinner. They have a great room for groups and there was a clown there doing the funny balloon figure thingies that the kids loved. Best of all it didn’t cost anything to use the room (the clown was accepting tips and it was worth it for the kids entertainment). Plus they have a deal on Tuesday nights for kids to eat for cheap. It was great.

El Patron – is our favorite mexican restaurant in Anderson. I must have mexican ancestors or something because I could eat the food probably every day.

I’ll do this again soon cause I’m always doing business with somebody. Good businesses deserve some word of mouth advertising, so take my word for it and keep these guys in mind.
