Manager’s Words
The weather is still funky in our area. Please continue to be vigilant with army worms. All it takes is one warm spell and they can come back to life. I would also like to take a moment to thank our customers for 75 years of business. We realize that you have choices with your property supplies. You continue to turn to us. We would not be where we are today without you and your family’s business for so many years.

Thank you for your business,

Willis Braden
