Lowe's to build massive distribution center in Ga.

Lowe's to build massive distribution center in Ga.

ROME, Ga. -- Executives with Lowe's Companies, Inc. say they plan to break ground next Wednesday on a massive new distribution center in northwest Georgia.

The North Carolina-based home improvement firm is expected to initially employ 150 workers at the Floyd County facility, and potentially 600 employees by 2016.

Karen Cobb, a Lowe's spokeswoman, said the company closed on the acquisition of 140 acres of property in the North Floyd Industrial Park on Friday.

Officials say the 1.45 million-square-foot distribution center will serve the company's Southeastern U.S. market.

Floyd County Commission Chairman Eddie Lumsden said a groundbreaking ceremony is planned for Wednesday morning.

If You Know Me, You Know I LOVE My Tea! Register Now For Your FREE Chick-Fil-A Tea, August 1-13,2011

I have a confession: My name is Maura, and I’m a tea-a-holic.

I’m a daily tea drinker. Chick-Fil-A is my “dealer” of choice, and it helps that there’s one located right around the corner from my house. My Twitter friends tease me about my check-ins, my clients give me gift cards to feed the need, and I’m rarely out and about without that red-and-white styrofoam cup in my car filled with freshly brewed refreshment.

How happy am I, then, to hear the words “Chick-Fil-A” and “free” and “tea” in the same sentence?

It’s true! From August 1 through 13, 2011, Chick-Fil-A is giving away free half-gallons of their tea to you and me for The Great Tea Giveaway!

Free and cheap school supplies

Free and cheap school supplies

ATLANTA -- This is the best time of year to buy both school supplies and office supplies.  Some things are as low as a penny, or even free after rebates!

I set out to find the best deals on a typical kindergarten or first grade supply list from Atlanta Public Schools.

I found the most convenient way to buy supplies is to order them through SchoolPak.com. The company will ship a box of required supplies to your home or school. The first grade list came to $55.34 including shipping.

I set out to see if I could find better deals in the stores. First our summer intern Katie and I went through the weekly sale flyers in search of the lowest possible prices for every item on our list.
