Load up on artful and strong-armed sediment with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $200 worth of products and services at A&S Sales, Inc., located in Frederick and Alexandria.
Stocking premier natural stone, cabinetry, and tile for more than 40 years, A&S specializes in the custom fabrication and installation of marble, granite, and dimension stone surfaces, as well as complete kitchen and bath remodeling services.
