CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY—Armstrong Feed & Supply at 28520 Cole Grade Rd. will have their annual Customer Appreciation Day on October 10, and it’s one of those events like the day after Thanksgiving when you may find people camped out all night on the 9th. Why? Because the first 100 customers of the day will get a free bucket of goodies!
Armstrong opens at 8 a.m. and expects to be swamped from 8 a.m. on, with the biggest concentration at lunchtime. That’s when a free barbecue lunch of hotdogs and hamburgers and assorted side dishes will be served.
Throughout the day there will be raffles for grand prizes and drawings for free feed. Customers will also be able to save on food.
Recently the store won a prize from Nutro for its pet food display. The display was judged Best in the United States. Representatives from Armstrong will be flown to the Nutro corporate headquarters in Tennessee to receive the award.
