Website shopping cart

Our previous problem with our shopping cart provider has been resolved - Don was able to talk to customer service and work out an agreement with them.

He was also able to retrieve the orders we hadn't been able to access previously.

So the shopping cart part of the website is open for business.

Free parking is available Monday-Thursday after 5pm, and all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in the dental office lot next door.

Metered parking (25 cents for 20 minutes) is available in front of the store. Meters are enforced 8am-6pm Monday through Saturday (except for federal holidays). Note the number on the pole you park by, and pay at the box located between the dental office driveway and Popeyes driveway. The box accepts quarters, dollar coins, and credit cards, and prints a receipt that shows the expiration time. Meter parking for vehicles with Disability License Plates or a Disability Certificate is free. (Rates and hours shown are subject to change without notice - the meters are run by the city, not by us.)
