New Griffin Location
Local Business to Take Over Southern States Location in Griffin
Akins Feed and Seed Co., Inc. is excited to announce that it will be opening a new location at the Southern States facility in Griffin at 748 Everee
Inn Road. The new location will be open for business Friday, July 26.
Akins Feed and Seed Manager Jim Matlock said, “When we heard that Southern States in Griffin would be closing its doors, we knew we had
to do something to ensure that our local farmers would still be able to get what they need. After much thought, prayer and discussion, we
decided that this could best be done by opening at the Everee Inn Location.” Akins Feed and Seed will be making things easier for our
customers by expanding its merchandise to include selling Southern States Feed. Mr. Matlock said that this is very important. “Changing an
animal’s feed can be difficult, and we are glad that we will be able to help many customers maintain their current routines. This is healthier for
the animals and easier for their owners."
As always, Akins Feed and Seed will continue to serve to large-scale and small-scale customers at all three locations in such ways as:
· Hand packaged and bulk seed
· A wide selection of livestock feed including Purina, Godfrey’s, Seminole, and Southern States feeds
· Lawn care supplies and guidance
· Fencing supplies
· Organic farming supplies and guidance
· Pet food and pet care supplies
· Pest and weed control supplies and guidance
· Spreading/spraying of fertilizers and pest/weed control for large areas
· Pecan cracking and shaking
· Snapper & Snapper Pro Mowers and service
“We know that this will be a transition, and there are sure to be some bumps along the way,” said Mr. Matlock, “But we are hoping to make
this as seamless as possible. Akins Feed and Seed has been serving local farmers and gardeners since 1940, and we are excited about our
future as we take this step.
