Slimberry's chilly menu boasts eight or more daily flavors of fat-free, protein- and calcium-rich frozen yogurt, ready and willing to be dressed up in a diverse smattering of toppings. Like last-minute wedding dates, the frosty dessert is dispensed by self-serve machines and is available in classic flavors such as strawberry, chocolate, and blueberry. Fresh fruit toppings such as raspberries, kiwi, or mango pepper the icy treat with colorful, vitamin-packed pleasures, and a sprinkling of dry toppings, such as candy, nuts, or cheesecake bits, provide crunch for underutilized molars and nutcracker implants. Patrons enjoy their swirled sweets while navigating the Internet with free WiFi and lounging at outdoor tables at the Alpharetta locations.
Contributing to local commerce isn’t new territory for the Howard family. In 1925, Edwin Howard’s in-laws founded a small grocery in Doraville, which he took leadership of 30 years later. After gaining experience in that business, he decided to expand the family’s venture, and in 1972, he opened the first Howard’s True Value Hardware right next door. Now, after more than 35 years and currently under the ownership of Howard brothers John and Doug, the hardware store keeps shelves stocked with more than 100,000 hardware items, tools, and home-garden accouterments from the likes of Carhartt and Honda, as well as charcoal grills from Big Green Egg, wood pellet grills from Traeger, and a line of propane grills with tanks they can fill in-store. For sports enthusiasts, they're an authorized YETI Cooler and Tifosi Eyeglass Dealer.
Building materials, including adhesives and mason tools, lighten the burdens of home-improvement projects, and a constellation of hand tools relieves the hassle of hiring a beaver to chew its way through 2”x4”s. A full stock of interior paints helps customers brighten the hue of living quarters, while a sturdy pair of jeans from Carhartt helps them to withstand the wear-and-tear of maintenance projects or slow dances with rose bushes.
With humble beginnings in 1924, Ace Hardware now comprises 4,600 stores in all 50 states and in more than 70 countries, guiding everyone from seasoned do-it-yourselfers to novices through its massive inventory. Enlist the aid of a knowledgeable pro while sifting through tools, lawn and garden supplies, electrical equipment, and outdoor-living accessories that simplify the hosting of backyard barbecues and the hanging of Christmas lights on zoo animals. Holiday accessories such as 100-count lights ($9.99) and portable fireplaces ($29.99) aid and imbue celebrations with seasonal spirit. During any time of year, a hatchet ($18.49–$36.99) helps forest visionaries see the wood for the trees, and a second mailbox ($13.99–$84.99) doubles the amount of fan mail homeowners can expect to receive.
While his wife weaves together boughs to craft holiday wreaths, Dan Skelton draws on more than 20 years of horticultural experience to tend to freshly cut fraser firs. Strolling through an aromatic forest of evergreens from North Carolina, guests choose a tree of the perfect height and width to fill a lonely living-room corner or barricade Scrooge's front door. The fragrant plants festoon festive abodes in a variety of sizes, from 6-foot-tall present shelterers ($40+) to 10-foot-tall ornament hogs ($125+). Revelers augment holiday spirit with 24-inch wreaths hand-woven from emerald branches of fresh pine. Holiday gifts and décor nestle inside a cozy cottage, and visitors gather around a fire to warm chilly fingers by roasting marshmallows, sipping steaming mugs of hot cocoa, or sharing baby photos of their mittens. For every tree sold, GardenWright Nurseries makes a donation to the Make a Wish Foundation.
