    Located at: 308 Main St. in Shelbyville -- Upstairs in Suite B

    Office hours: 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday-Friday

  • Holiday shopping bodes well for most stores

    Christmas retail sales across the country showed a modest increase from 2008 to 2009. Shelby County stores, however, reported mixed results.

    Main Street Music & More owner Mary Wiecek said beginning guitars sold well, but overall sales were still down from last year. This was not good considering how much the store relies on holiday shoppers.

    "It's a big percentage of our year," Wiecek said. "We have cut back on some inventory."

  • Crafters create decorations, unique holiday gifts

    Among a dozen wreaths circling Brenda Richardson's dining room is a piece of swag she created using greenery, red hollies, plaid ribbon and pine cones. It's her favorite piece.

    ”It's made to look like it's plucked out of the woods," she said.

    Richardson is one of several Shelby County crafters whose works are decorating the homes of neighbors or are wrapped delicately to be given as gifts at Christmas.

  • Fastenal, landlord discuss new lease

    A “for rent” banner atop the building occupied by Fastenal in Shelbyville has driven speculation that the store is closing, but that’s not the case, its district manager said.

    Mike Miller, who oversees 10 stores in the region, said that the company has asked the landlord of its store at 251 Alpine Drive to review its 5-year lease that has 14 months remaining.

    Fastenal signed its agreement with landlord Lewis Brashear during a boom time and Miller feels that the monthly rate is higher now than it should be.

    And if you are, you certainly know the way to Shelby Bingo Plus in Simpsonville.

    But what most people don’t know is how much Bingo Plus pumps back into Shelby County.
