Southern States Wallace Service celebrated their store remodel with a open house event on Friday, November 20th and Saturday, November 21st. Southern States board member Wilbur C Ward as well as members of the local chamber of commerce was in attendance for the ribbon cutting on Friday morning.
Grand prizes included a $200 Southern States gift card given away at the end of each day along with a $25 gift card given away every hour. On Saturday the FFA served hotdogs and doughnuts.
It was great fall weather for the event with sunny skies and temps in the mid 70’s. Total volume for the two day event was $20,529 with 388 transactions. This was against $12,060 and 215 transactions from the same time a year ago. Advertised items included cedar bird feeders, propane tank refills as well as a variety of feeds and animal health products. Many first time buyers came to see all that Southern States has to offer. Congratulations to Wallace on a successful event and a great store.
