Alexander’s Store – Business of the Week

Everything Under the Sun….and then some. We selected Alexander’s Store as Business of the Week and provided their hard working staff with lunch. If you’ve never visited Alexander’s, make a point to do so the next time you are in the area.

AboutBannerAlexander’s Store is more than “just a store.” It’s a testimony of how a family business, established in 1957 can be passed on to another generation and be successful in today’s era of mega stores and mall mania. The store has an incredible 50,000 square feet of space which is hard to imagine just standing out front. Because of the uniqueness of the store, many regard the landmark as a tourist site. What started as a general store has now evolved into a shopping experience with major brand clothing, shoes, furniture, appliances and “Everything under the Sun” for the sportsman including guns, ammunition and archery supplies. Our customers deserve respect, good values, quality service and a smile. We hope you enjoy our website page and when you’re in the North Georgia mountains, please stop in and wander around our store and say hello. We’d love to meet you.

Hoyt & Ruby – How It Started

HoytRubyHoyt and Ruby poured their lives into the store. Hoyt made sure the customers got what they wanted and if anyone was struggling during hard times Hoyt & Ruby would help them in any way they could, no questions asked. She had a great mind for business. As far as Ruby was concerned, nothing was too good for her customers. She would gift wrap any item for free and be happy to do it. This is still carried on today. A friendly attitude always prevailed and still does to this day.

The Alexander’s

AlexandersAs a family-owned business, Alexander’s has a set of shared traditions and values that are rooted in the history of the store. Both Eddy and Sandy have tried to carry on the traditions of both Hoyt and Ruby as the second generation and are passing that on to their son Mark and his wife Kennetha, the third generation. Treat everyone with respect and give them quality service with a smile.
