Marietta to host state's first Walmart grocery store

Marietta to host state's first Walmart grocery store

MARIETTA, Ga. -- Georgia's first-ever Walmart Neighborhood Market is coming to Marietta.

The city's Board of Zoning Appeals recently approved variance requests that will allow the grocery store to be built at 1137 Powder Springs Road.

About 80 to 100 new jobs will result from the store's opening.

"We are very pleased to see this new investment in our city and expect it to positively impact the economy of the area," said city manager Bill Bruton. "We're hopeful the store will generate other new businesses nearby. Also, the appearance of the building and landscaping will blend well with the streetscape enhancements the city has made on Powder Springs Road."

The new Neighborhood Market will replace a Food Depot that closed earlier this year.

If You Know Me, You Know I LOVE My Tea! Register Now For Your FREE Chick-Fil-A Tea, August 1-13,2011

I have a confession: My name is Maura, and I’m a tea-a-holic.

I’m a daily tea drinker. Chick-Fil-A is my “dealer” of choice, and it helps that there’s one located right around the corner from my house. My Twitter friends tease me about my check-ins, my clients give me gift cards to feed the need, and I’m rarely out and about without that red-and-white styrofoam cup in my car filled with freshly brewed refreshment.

How happy am I, then, to hear the words “Chick-Fil-A” and “free” and “tea” in the same sentence?

It’s true! From August 1 through 13, 2011, Chick-Fil-A is giving away free half-gallons of their tea to you and me for The Great Tea Giveaway!

Free and cheap school supplies

Free and cheap school supplies

ATLANTA -- This is the best time of year to buy both school supplies and office supplies.  Some things are as low as a penny, or even free after rebates!

I set out to find the best deals on a typical kindergarten or first grade supply list from Atlanta Public Schools.

I found the most convenient way to buy supplies is to order them through SchoolPak.com. The company will ship a box of required supplies to your home or school. The first grade list came to $55.34 including shipping.

I set out to see if I could find better deals in the stores. First our summer intern Katie and I went through the weekly sale flyers in search of the lowest possible prices for every item on our list.
