Mom-friendly Businesses – Part 2
I recently highlighted some Mom-friendly businesses that are part of our local high country community. Here are some other locations where I’ve had recent positive experiences.
Looking for great service for your vehicle? Call Judd Huffman at Alray Tire & Auto, located on the Highway 105 Extension in Boone. My car has needed maintenance a few times, and each time my husband was out of town. The guys at Alray accommodated me by arranging towing or allowing me to drop off and pick up the car when someone was available to help me. We really trust and appreciate them and their service.
Our local Earth Fare is also a favorite of mine. There are just those Sundays that I don’t feel like preparing lunch after a tiresome week. Earth Fare’s Burgers for Bucks is a great way to eat better on a budget. Three dollar burgers is my kind of deal! Family Dinner Night is another great way to get out of the house with the kids. Head to Earth Fare on Thursdays from 4-8pm to get a free kids meal with an adult meal purchase of $5 or more. Check out all the Earth Fare has to offer to our local mom community.
Finally, the biggest task that I still avoid is grocery shopping. And thanks to Harris Teeter of Boone, all I have to do is place my order online, drive up to the special parking spot, push a button, give my name and they bring the groceries out to me. I can pay with a credit or debit card at my car window and they even load the groceries for me! The cost is $4.95 per order or $16.95 for unlimited shopping for thirty days. I’ve taken advantage of this more times than I can count and the folks that work there are so friendly and helpful. They’ll call you when your order is ready, let you know if they had to substitute any items and ask if you have anything you want to add to your order. You can check out all the details here. We even manage to work this into our grocery budget and let go of some other extra things right now so that I can go without some stress as I learn how to be a mom.
I am certain there are many other businesses that moms find helpful but I wanted to highlight a few great experiences that I’ve had lately. What about you? Have you had a wonderful experience with a local business that you would like to share with our High Country Mom community? I would love to hear from you!
