The Franklin Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony at Southern Port Traders celebrating the grand opening of a new store at 27 Macon Center Road next to Hungry Bear.
Ron Sandage comes to Franklin with 50 years of experience in retail and interior design. His love of antiques, artifacts and treasures has led him to Franklin to offer his collections from three previous stores, all beautifully displayed. His “Nifty Thrifty Shop” comes from more than 4,000 items priced at 20 to 80 percent off every item, every day. Combined with consignment of many goods at 25 percent to 75 percent, this is a store you must see.
