After growing up in Coweta, what are some of the biggest changes you've seen?

One of the biggest changes is growth, in a nutshell. Growth in housing, schools and businesses that has also increased traffic. It is awesome to see such progress and at the same time still have the small town feel and hospitality of the good old days.

What's the best business advice you've ever received?

My mom, Dura Riner, gave me some of the best business advice at a young age: ”Pay your bills and then plan extra activities.” Without that advice, I do not believe I would have ever been able to afford to open a small business. With that said, since I’ve been in business, the best advice has been, “Treat your customers right, because without customers there is no business.” 

If you weren't doing this, what would you be doing?

I can’t imagine what else I would be doing now. Georgia has been wonderful to our business over the years, and I couldn’t be happier with the opportunity to bring our breadth of products, services, expertise and helpful advice to the community I was raised in. Newnan is the ideal place to open a store because the city continues to grow. love working with our customers and staff.
