  1. A month ago my washing machine flooded half of my house. I had to get up all the flooring because mold was already growing. I called BIG BEAR RESTORATION in Powder Springs. Phone # 770-222-5220
    They were one of the best companies I have dealt with my whole life. Very trustful and dependable. It may help people who need help with their damaged houses.

  2. Dollar Discount in Suwanee is offering a 10% discount on any school supplies purchased for Clarkdale Elementary. We have a drop off box here in the store which will be delivered next week if you want to drop the donation off.
    Located at 1000 Peachtree Industrial Blvd. in the McGinnis Crossing Shopping Center, we carry a full line of school supplies and will also be donated to the school as well. 770-932-2120
