Outdoor Living
Nothing sets off a home like landscaping, so be sure to visit our local nurseries and garden centers, including Buds & Butterflies Nursery and Garden Center, General Supply and Nelson’s ACE Hardware. The folks at North GA Stone & Outdoor Living can design a gorgeous stone walkway or outdoor fireplace. Then be
sure to add a flagpole and flag from Mountain Flagpoles. Of course, there’s nothing more relaxing than the perfect spa or hot tub from Back Yard Delights or Spa and Deck Creations — both of which also offer repairs and spa/pool supplies.

It all began in 1953 as a small general store selling feed and seed, a few groceries and gas in the Trackrock area of the county. It has since evolved into a tourist landmark, plus a shopping experience with casual yet trendy clothing and shoes, furniture, appliances, gifts, accessories, and guns and ammunition.
Alexanders is a family-owned busi- ness passed down three generations from original owners Hoyt and Ruby to their son Eddy and his wife Sandy, and now their son Mark and his wife Kennetha. More than just a store, Alexander’s is a testimony to how
a family business can succeed in today’s era of mega stores and online shopping. Be sure to stop in the store that’s not just a store.
