It has been an unusual start to the season. The store is off to a great start with softeners, bulk delivery, Sandy Pines logo merchandise, clothing and the regular items. Our hours are from 9:30 to 4 every day, except Sunday when we are open from noon to 4. Remember that on Sunday’s there is no delivery of bulk product and we do not fill propane.
We have had a great start to the season with our water softeners. But If you are still interested in getting the rust out of the water, enjoying soft water when showering or washing dishes, stop by and see us for getting a softener put on your trailer.
We now have gift cards available that you can purchase in any denomination. The cards are reloadable and work just like a credit card. They can be used for anything in the Store or at our Rental Office which includes golf carts, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, row boats, and cruiser bicycles. While similar gift cards are available at The Happy Shack and Lake Monterey Golf Course, please note they can only be used at the location of their point of purchase. Gift cards make great Christmas In August stocking stuffers!
We can make a key for your porch, post office box, or a lock stop by the Park and Garden Store. If we don’t have the key blank in stock, we will order it. Official Sandy Pines merchandise and logo wear is now available at the Park and Garden Store with lots of new designs for 2020. If we don’t have your size, you can order them on the new Online Store at SandyPines.com/OnlineStore. Do not hesitate to suggest items that you would like to see at the store. While you’re in the store, make sure to check out our new ATM available for use.
We got off to a slow start with the rentals of golf cart and watercraft, but we are now in full swing. Make sure you get you reservation in early for the busy holiday weekends – Christmas in August and Labor Day.
We hope to see many of you at the Marina to use the paddleboards and kayaks we have available. The Marina is open on Wednesday and Friday nights from 5 pm to 8 pm and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 pm. If you want to use a watercraft at other times stop by the rental office and reserve the watercraft and we will make sure someone is at the marina to get the paddleboard or kayak ready for you.
Have you tried out the bicycles that are available for the members and guests? Bikes are rented for $4.00 per hour. Special pricing for ½ day and full day prices. You could get them for a wonder ride in the evening as the sun is setting, and for the sunrise on a beautiful early ride.
The number to call for information on the rentals of the Park and Garden items is 616-896-9888. The rental office is open from 9 am to 4 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Friday hours are 9 am to 7 pm and Sunday hours are 10 am to 4 pm.
We have added many new items since we have more room. We have a good supply of lumber, and just in are sprinkler heads for your irrigation systems. We have also increased the size of our fishing equipment.
We look forward to serving your needs throughout the rest of the summer.
