Chamber Holds Joint Ribbon Cutting

The Toccoa-Stephens County Chamber of Commerce recognizes two businesses with one ribbon-cutting.

Thursday, the Chamber held a joint ribbon cutting for That’s a Great Deal and McGarity’s Starters and Alternators, which are both located on Big A Road in Toccoa near its intersection with Currahee Street.

That’s A Great Deal is celebrating its four year anniversary.

Owner Charles Hall said his store has a lot of different things.

“We are a closeout liquidation store,” said Hall.  “We specialize in clothing, house wares, make-up, (and) jewelry.”

That’s A Great Deal is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Meanwhile, McGarity’s Starters and Alternators is relatively new to Toccoa.

Owner Steve McGarity said, however, he can do more than what the name implies.

“We have refurbished batteries,” said McGarity.  “They are $45 for any of them with a one-year warranty.  We build starters and alternators.  Come by and we will give you a price.  We will save you money.”

McGarity’s is open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The phone number is 706-827-9980.
