A new ALCO store will open in Pembroke on Thursday, Nov. 8. The store’s Grand Opening celebration will start Thursday at 7 a.m. with refreshments followed by a ribbon cutting for local dignitaries and store staff at 7:45 a.m.
The approximately 20,000 square foot store is located at 790 West Bacon Street, and employs approximately 25 associates. The store hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
The new Pembroke location will be the third ALCO store in Georgia. Its full line of merchandise will be supplied from the 350,000 square foot ALCO distribution center in Abilene, Kansas. It is one of the company’s first stores opening this fall to incorporate several new environmentally friendly initiatives including pre-insulated wall panels to conserve energy and 100 percent recyclable steel in the roof, ceiling and walls.
"We are excited to open our third store in the state of Georgia, and we are confident the new ALCO store will meet the needs of shoppers in Pembroke and the surrounding community," said store manager Mikela Critzer. "We look forward to being involved in the community and serving shoppers with ALCO’s wide selection of merchandise, convenient location and friendly, local service." ALCO stores nationwide are active supporters of each local community.
Consumers in the area can look for ALCO circulars to arrive by mail and in the local paper. They can also visit the company’s website, www.ALCOstores.com, to view the circular. For a great gift idea anytime of the year, the company also offers gift cards which can be purchased online or in the store for use in any ALCO store nationwide. The gift cards are available in denominations of $10, $25 and $50.
ALCO Stores also offer Senior Discount Day every Monday. Those 62 and older can receive 15 percent off all their purchases on that day.
Currently celebrating its 106th year, Duckwall-ALCO Stores, Inc. was founded in 1901 in Abilene, Kan., and has been in continuous operation since that time. To learn more about Duckwall-ALCO Stores, Inc. visit its website, www.ALCOstores.com.
