Once we do, we handle all the heavy lifting, including cabinet design and installation in your home.

So, why should you install new kitchen cabinets alongside your countertops? Here are just a few reasons:

01
Matching Design

Matching Design

Many customers install new kitchen cabinets because they're already remodeling their kitchen and need their cabinets to match the aesthetics of their updated space. Do you want your kitchen to feel more open and airier? Do you have specific lifestyle requirements that necessitate a particular cabinet material? Our kitchen cabinet experts can help you find the perfect cabinet setup for your needs.

02
More Storage

More Storage

Having a uniform aesthetic throughout your kitchen and home is important. But from a practical standpoint, new kitchen cabinets often mean more kitchen storage. That's a big deal for families, especially when younger children are involved. If you find that your countertops are magnets for clutter, new cabinetry can help remove the mess and stress less. The more storage your kitchen has, the easier it will be to use your kitchen for cooking and entertaining.

03
Boost Resale Value of Your Home

Boost Resale Value of Your Home

Take a few moments and check out the bones of your current cabinets. Low-quality, cheap cabinets are often a turnoff for potential buyers. If you plan on selling your home in the next few years, one of the best ways to boost resale value is with new cabinetry.

04
Enhanced Functionality

Enhanced Functionality

Is it a pain in the side to cook in your kitchen? Whether it's due to clutter, design, or something else, many of our customers want new cabinets so that their kitchen is functional again. New cabinets give you more storage, as mentioned above, but they can also make your kitchen more functional, depending on design and remodeling preferences.

Living the Life in Summerville: Primate sanctuary is saving thousands of lives

Tucked away near Summerville, SC – the place known as “Flowertown, USA” – is a sanctuary dedicated to gibbons (small apes). It’s a jungle-like wonderland that has lifesaving at the core of its mission.

The International Primate Protection League (IPPL) sanctuary is a secret to many locals. It is situated on over 40 acres of land surrounded by lush woods. Neighbors are lucky enough to hear the songs and great calls of these interesting primates throughout the day and night.

The sanctuary is home to 36 gibbons, the smallest of the apes, who have been rescued or retired from laboratories, deplorable “roadside” attractions, or the pet trade. IPPL provides lifetime care to these incredible endangered species and works to educate the community on the plight of gibbons in the wild.

The gibbon residents at the sanctuary have indoor night houses that are hurricane-grade, expansive outdoor habitats, and aerial walkways that give them the choice to safely move about their designated areas as they wish. It is important to the organization that each sanctuary resident is given as much freedom of choice as possible in a captive environment, while keeping them safe. Despite most residents having a rough start to their lives, they thrive at IPPL. They even have some residents nearing the age of 60!

International Outreach

IPPL is a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the world’s remaining primates, great and small. For the last 45 years, IPPL has made a global impact by securing an export ban on primates from Thailand (saving thousands and thousands of lives) and working with over 20 reputable primate rescue and rehabilitation centers in Southeast Asia, Africa, and South America.

IPPL not only supports their efforts to care for native primates who have been rescued and are in need of rehabilitation or lifetime care, but also to thwart poachers and illegal wildlife traffickers, as well as educate local villages and communities on how they can help be part of the solution in preserving native populations of primates.

Small Team, Big Impact

With a small but mighty team of animal caregivers, maintenance technicians, office staff, and dog nannies, IPPL provides compassionate lifetime care for every resident, which includes nutritious and delicious fresh produce three times a day for the gibbons, as well as veterinary care and enrichment — to stimulate those intelligent minds of theirs!

Forms of enrichment vary from food puzzles that the gibbon must figure out in order to get their healthy treats, to special time with their favorite caregiver. Bubble-blowing is a big hit with some of the gibbons. Tong, who was one of the first four original residents at the sanctuary, loves a good foot rub — what girl doesn’t?

Absolutely nothing beats a life in the wild, but for these residents that is sadly not a reality. The team at IPPL feels that the least they can do is make the rest of these individuals’ lives the happiest and healthiest they can be. From residents used in invasive human vaccination studies and locomotion tests, to those kept in less-than-favorable conditions, IPPL’s sanctuary is a safe and loving place for them to thrive and to live as gibbons should.

Casey L. Taylor, JD is the Executive Director of IPPL.

MORE ABOUT IPPL

The sanctuary is not open to the public as an attraction, but it holds educational events in the community and offers options to visit during special times. Sign up to receive their e-newsletters on their website (www.ippl.org) and be the first to know about opportunities and events.

SC small businesses find workarounds as inflation climbs to a 40-year high

With prices rising fast, Christine Kirk’s Washes and Wags started feeling the pinch.

The groomers at the Summerville pet grooming shop work on 50 percent commission, and shampooers earn an hourly wage. So when the cost of shampoo more than doubled from $26 to $57 a gallon and material for bandanas jumped by $2 to $4.99 a yard, the small business owner was forced to take action.

Kirk tried her best to keep costs down for her loyal customers. She raised nail trimming prices for walk-ins and increased cancellation fees for no-shows. But the moves helped only slightly, and there was a time when she thought she would have to close her shop on Bacons Bridge Road for a while.

So far, the demand for services remains high, and her regular clientele has kept the business going through the coronavirus pandemic and the slow economic recovery. But she worries about prices that are still rising and what that will do to her business.

“My profits mostly come from shampooing, and that’s where my costs have almost doubled,” Kirk said.

Owners of small businesses are increasingly pessimistic. The National Federation of Independent Businesses polls its members monthly for its Small Business Optimism Index, which declined for a fourth straight month in April. It is at the lowest level since April 2020 and below the 48-year average of 98 for the third consecutive month.

Of those polled, 32 percent pointed to inflation as their most crucial problem, displacing the labor shortage. That is the biggest share since the last three months of 1980. And small business owners expecting better business conditions over the next six months slipped to the lowest level recorded in the group’s nearly half-century-old survey.

“Small business owners are struggling to deal with inflation pressures,” NFIB chief economist Bill Dunkelberg said. “The labor supply is not responding strongly to small businesses’ high wage offers, and the impact of inflation has significantly disrupted business operations.”

April brought some relief, but not much. After hitting a 41-year high of 8.5 percent in March, the year-over-year inflation rate eased slightly to 8.3 percent last month, the U.S. Commerce Department reported last week.

Some signs in the May 11 report even suggested that inflation might be peaking. For instance, prices rose 0.3 percent from March to April, the smallest gain in eight months. But so-called core prices that exclude the volatile food and fuel category doubled to 0.6 percent over the same period, higher than the 0.4 percent rate that economists had expected.

Food and energy prices remain in flux. Gas prices began to spike again last week, hitting an all-time high of $4.13 on average May 13 for a gallon of regular unleaded in South Carolina.

A recent farm report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture hit home with Julie Boone, the owner of Eggs Up Grill restaurants in Knightsville, Ladson and Moncks Corner. It showed the national average price for a dozen large white eggs is $2.50, up from $1.60 a year ago.

Boone said she sourced eggs locally for her stores that serve breakfast and lunch daily, but the combined effects of the pandemic and inflation on local farmers limited the supply.

She got an assist from the Spartanburg-based parent company, which sells franchises and has more than 50 Eggs Up restaurants and 40 in development across the Southeast. Executives worked with its franchisees to find the best pricing for eggs and other necessities to keep the restaurants stocked.

“Luckily, we have great corporate leadership,” Boone said.

Dave Gugliotti, the owner of a charter boat business based at Charleston City Marina, doesn’t have that kind of safety net. He’s on his own to find solutions for soaring fuel costs.

The diesel Gugliotti needs to fuel Carolina Marine Group’s boats and yacht climbed to another record high of $5.46 a gallon in the Palmetto State on Friday. That’s a difference of $2.50 from a year ago, an 84 percent increase.

Gugliotti said he hadn’t raised prices for harbor cruises and boat tours for fear of pricing himself out of the market.

“We just have to think more about how we do things,” the ship captain said, noting that anchoring and puttering back to shore at lower speeds have helped cut fuel bills.

Like Eggs Up Grill, another problem for his business has been buying supplies.

“Parts are nonexistent because there is no manufacturing. Nothing fazes us anymore. This week you can’t get dark pigment paint,” Gugliotti said. “Next week, it could be batteries.”

He is also having difficulty hiring crew members.

“There is no experienced help. The workforce is just not there,” Gugliotti said.

Pressing issue

But inflation remains the most pressing issue of the moment. A recent Goldman Sachs survey found that 80 percent of small business owners feel the financial health of their companies has suffered because of rising prices over the past six months. Of those, 67 percent have increased wages to retain employees, who are feeling the trickledown effects of inflation at home, and 61 percent have increased wages to attract new help.

Most smaller businesses are not equipped to compete with larger employers that can offer other benefits such as insurance and profit-sharing that draw valuable workers away.

At Washes and Wags, Kirk battles the threat with a personal touch. She pays for employee lunches here and there and does small things to show her appreciation.

But as companies pay more to attract and retain employees and change how they work to soften the blow from inflation, the Federal Reserve is planning several interest rates hikes to rein in rising prices.

The central bank raised its benchmark short-term rate by a half-point this month, double its typical quarter-point hike and the first increase of that size since 2000. For small business owners, that could impose another form of inflation if they rely on lines of credit and other variable-rate loans. Higher rates would make their borrowing costs go up on top of everything else.

The Fed’s move is intended to tamp down inflation by taking money out of the economy through the banking system, said Frank Hefner, director of the College of Charleston’s Office of Economic Analysis. He said companies that use debt financing would be affected, whether big or small. Some will weather the storm better than others.

As for inflation, he said, business owners have to keep “playing catch up.” It will be harder to sell a product at one price as the cost of production increases.

“They have to make hay while the sun is shining to increase revenue,” Hefner said.

Former grocery-anchored shopping center near Charleston getting makeover, new tenants

A former grocery-anchored shopping center in Summerville is getting a makeover and will likely see several new tenants by the fall.

The Knightsville Crossing retail site at Orangeburg Road and Central Avenue, where Mr. K’s Piggly Wiggly supermarket served as the main draw until it closed in 2017, is being reworked.

Beaufort-based Grayco Hardware & Home will locate its first shop in the Charleston area by taking over the former 28,000-square-foot grocery site while a Dunkin’ donuts shop will be added onto one side of the shopping center.

Out front, a Parker’s convenience store and gas station is under construction and should be completed by late summer. Work has not begun on redoing the former supermarket space for the hardware store, but Grayco CEO Herb Gray said construction should start in about two weeks.

“We are hoping to be open by late August or September,” Gray said.

The family-owned hardware company’s new site will include furniture, lighting and clothing as well as a 9,700-square-foot garden center to be added on the right side of the shopping center.

“We have been expanding our footprint on hardware and home stores, and the Summerville store met our demographic,” Gray said. “We have been looking at Summerville for a while. We just think we have a good concept with our hardware and home store.”

This will be the ninth location for the company. It currently has two hardware and home stores, three lumber stores, two window shops and a millwork facility. Almost all of the locations are around Beaufort, Hilton Head and Savannah.

A Parker’s representative did not immediately respond for comment from the Savannah-based convenience store company, but work is progressing on construction at the site with the frameworks for both the convenience store and covered gas pumps in place.

A Parker affiliate bought the two-acre corner outparcel in November from Knightsville Enterprise LLC for $1.4 million, according to Dorchester County land records.

The shopping center site where the hardware store is going and other tenants are located is owned by Knightsville Enterprise LLC, which bought the property in November. The owner could not immediately be reached for comment.

Other tenants in the shopping center remain in place, including UPS Store, Hong Kong restaurant, Italian Bistro Pizza and Subs, H&R Block and Tiptoes Nail Salon.

Mr. K’s Piggly Wiggly closed in 2017 after 16 years at the location. Previous owner Jim Kersting blamed the store’s demise on the opening a year earlier of a Walmart Neighborhood Market small-format grocery store across the street. Publix also operates a supermarket near the busy intersection.

What’s brewing?

Charleston’s upper peninsula keeps percolating with new business ventures, and a coffee shop is the latest proposal.

CKC Properties, the owner of a vacant lot across from Santi’s Restaurante Mexicano on Meeting Street, wants to build a 1,000-square-foot coffee shop with a drive-thru. That’s also across the street from where home builder Lennar’s LMC apartment division plans to construct an eight-story structure with 303 units. The multifamily site, just north of Santi’s, once housed Charleston Marine and Rigging, which moved up the road to North Charleston.

Also, Dog & Duck restaurant and bar has applied to the state for a permit to sell beer, wine and liquor at a new location at 1937-A Clements Ferry Road near the Wando area of Berkeley County.

The location is just down the street from socks and t-shirt importer Gildan’s distribution center. The food and spirits vendor offers other locations under different owners in Mount Pleasant and Summerville. An opening date has not been announced for the new site.

Going dark

A small take-out-only pizza shop in downtown Charleston will offer its last slices May 18.

The shop, owned by Brittany and Luke Davis, announced on Facebook recently they are closing the 3-year-old Luke’s Pizza operation at 271 Ashley Ave. to spend more time with family.

“Saturday, May 18, will mark three years since our little pizza shop opened,” the owners said on Facebook. “It’s been an incredible run, and we are forever grateful for this experience. That’s why it’s truly bittersweet for us to say that in a few short weeks May 18 will also signify our last day of business. We’ll be closing the doors, and moving onto the next chapter in our lives.”

The Davises said the move is not about slow sales, a staff shortage or rising operating costs.

“This is simply due to family,” they said. “Our schedule just doesn’t allow us enough time together, so we’re making a change.”

They also indicated Luke’s might not vanish forever, saying, “We hope — we know — it won’t be the last you’ll see of Luke’s pizza.”

Also recently turning out the lights was Smoothie King at 351 King St. It has two other locations in the Charleston area in West Ashley and at Cane Bay Plantation in Berkeley County. A sign on the door of the closed King Street shop says another is expected to reopen soon in Mount Pleasant.

Putting it together

A new do-it-yourself craft shop launches this weekend in North Charleston.

Craft & Canvas will open Saturday at 4412 Spruill Ave.

Owned and operated by Stacey LeBrun, the shop’s opening celebration will include the offering of a free craft from noon to 2 p.m.

An adult craft class is set for 3-5 p.m., and an adult paint class will run from 6-8 p.m. Registration is required.

In addition to craft and painting classes and open studio time, it will offer summer camps and birthday parties for children.

To register for classes or more information, go to www.charlestoncraftandcanvas.com.

New coop

Bojangles’ new chicken restaurant opened Tuesday at 1221 N. Main St. in Summerville. It’s part of Charleston-based franchisee Rising Biscuits LLC, which recently acquired six locations. Plans are in the works to renovate the others.

The restaurant will celebrate the grand opening 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 8. Details have not been released.

“One of our first projects when purchasing this franchise was to tear down the previous building and bring a brand-new restaurant to the Summerville community,” said Fisher Easterling, president of Rising Biscuits. “We’re looking forward to continuing our structural and culture renovations throughout our other restaurants.”

Lease lost

A downtown Charleston antiques shop has lost its lease and is looking for a new location.

Jacques Antiques will continue to operate a booth at Antiques of South Windermere in West Ashley and maintain an online presence at www.jacantiques.com, according to Candice Murphy with the antique store.

Taking over the antique space at 160 King St. is Buxton Books and Julian Buxton’s Tour Charleston Co., which is moving from 2 Cumberland St. A soft opening is set for Friday.

Mom and money

Mother’s Day is just over a week away, and the National Retail Federation predicts a record amount of spending on mom this year.

The trade group expects the amount of money laid out on mothers to reach $25 billion, up from $23.1 billion last year, based on its annual survey.

Mother’s Day ranks only behind Christmas and back-to-school shopping in the trade group’s list of holiday spending amounts.

Those celebrating Mother’s Day are expected to fork out about $196 each compared to $180 last year.

Flowers, jewelry, dinner, clothing, spa, housewares, garden tools, books, electronics and greeting and gift cards are all expected to be showered on mothers across the nation. The biggest layout will be on jewelry at $5.2 billion, followed by a special outing, flowers and gift cards or gift certificates.

Consumers ages 35-44 are likely to spend the most at an average $248, up from $224 last year, and men are likely to spend more than women at $237 compared with $158.

A North Charleston restaurant and bar is adding a second location while two other dining spots are now open in the Charleston suburbs.

Neighborhood Tap House plans to open by early fall in Festival Centre Shopping Center at Dorchester and Ashley Phosphate roads next to Ocean City Chinese Restaurant.

The restaurant and bar opened its original location at 2110 Greenridge Road off Rivers Avenue in North Charleston in 2015, according to business partner Fred Cavedo.

He hopes to have the venue open by the end of August, but he said construction is still underway so the launch is open-ended at this time.

In Ladson, a new breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurant is now serving.

Eggs Up Grill opened Monday at 3679 Ladson Road in front of Walmart Neighborhood Market. Its hours are 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. Another Eggs Up Grill is coming to the new Harris Teeter-anchored shopping center under development in West Ashley Circle.

Marc Cotone, owner of the new Ladson location, cited “the high volume of traffic, yet general lack of dining options in the Ladson Road/Palmetto Commerce Parkway area” when discussing the location choice.

“Eggs Up Grill continues to be a perfect fit for growing areas like Ladson, and we saw a great need here for the quality product and customer service that this brand is known for,” Cotone said. “We look forward to partnering with this community and becoming a hub of local activity, all while serving our neighbors for breakfast, brunch and lunch.”

The restaurant has three other locations in the Charleston area. They are in Cane Bay in Berkeley County, northern Mount Pleasant and the Knightsville area of Summerville.

Also now open is Agaves Mexican Cantina in the Lowes Foods-anchored Market at Mill Creek Shopping Center on S.C. Highway 41 in Mount Pleasant.

Package deal

The UPS Store will open a new location on the Charleston peninsula by November.

The packaging and printing company will move into a space at 472 Meeting St., Suite C, at Columbus Street.

“As development on the Peninsula continues to grow, we found that many areas were underserved,” said UPS Store franchisee Michael Cunningham. “By opening on the corner of Meeting and Columbus streets, our goal is to help people by providing them with the best possible print and business services without having to cross the peninsula to get them.”

Bow wow

A former retail shop in the Charleston region is being transformed into what is being called South Carolina’s first luxury dog hotel.

K9 Resorts Daycare and Luxury Hotels is upfitting an 8,900-square-foot former Rite Aid pharmacy store at 918 Houston Northcutt Blvd. in the Harris Teeter-anchored Village Pointe Shopping Center.

Get the best of the Post and Courier’s Real Estate news, handpicked and delivered to your inbox each Saturday.

The pet boarding facility will feature chandeliers, hospital-grade heating and air conditioning, ornate architecture, executive suites, and modern antimicrobial design elements inside and out for man’s best friend.

Kim Tryon, a veterinary tech dedicated to animal care for more than 15 years, will own and operate the facility. The Fanwood, N.J.-based business plans to open in September.

Rounding up

Through Aug. 27, Bi-Lo customers can round up their purchase to the nearest dollar or make a donation of their choice at the register to support the American Heart Association’s fundraising campaign “Life Is Why We Give.”

Tuning in

A new music venue is now open in downtown Charleston.

Forte Jazz Lounge can be found at 475 King St. in the former Pure Theater site, according to a statement from the performance venue.

Cameras for cash

Old camera equipment and film can be exchanged for cash at a West Ashley shop Friday and Saturday.

AccuPhotoLab & Studio will host Used Photo Pro’s buyer of cameras, film, tripods, light systems and other gear 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday at 1757-A Savannah Highway.

Also, Peachtree Camera will be on hand to clean and align camera lenses for a fee.

Rolling in

A Charleston man who developed a new wagon to haul supplies to the beach will showcase his wares at the new Yeti store in downtown Charleston during Second Sunday on King Street this weekend.

After five years and several prototypes, John McCollum created the Chuck Wagon to transport everything beachcombers need.

Yeti is located at 360 King St. Second Sunday runs 1-5 p.m., when King is closed to vehicular traffic from Calhoun to Queen street.

New fire station coming to Summerville

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - A new fire station is coming to the town of Summerville, making it the town’s sixth station.

Summerville Fire Department Chief Richard Waring says the new station will be built on Miles Jamison Road, right next to the Coastal Center. He says right now, they’re finishing up site work for the new station, and they hope to finish by December. The plan is for them to start clearing land by Jan. 1, Waring said.

There is not an address assigned to the site yet, but Waring says it will be located between the traffic circle and the Coastal Center on Miles Jameson Road. It would be on the same side of the road as the Coastal Center.

Waring says Fire Station 6 is going to improve their efficiency, especially as Summerville continues to grow.

“Just looking at the response times and what not for the area that this station’s going to serve,” Waring said. “Neighborhoods such as Summerville Place, the Lakes of Summerville, and those neighborhoods that are in town, it’ll improve our response time to those areas, and that’s what we were looking to do.”

Waring says the closest Summerville fire station to this area is on Trolley Road in the Oakbrook community. While that station averages about a seven to 10 minute response time to the area, Waring says the new Fire Station 6 will get them down to a less than five minute response time.

Waring says Summerville Fire is working with Dorchester County on the land agreement for the new station. While it is in town limits, he says they are going to be able to serve some areas in unincorporated Dorchester County as well.

Waring says they’ve renovated two existing stations over the last few years, but the last new station in town was Fire Station 5 in Knightsville. That was built back in 2014.

“Well, it’s just, it’s exciting,” Waring said. “Anytime you add a new fire station facility, it’s great for the department because it gives us a sense of pride for a new facility, and it’s also a better service we’ll be able to provide for our citizens, so we’re excited for that.”

Waring says Fire Station 6 will have the same features as the other stations in town, like work out equipment, diesel exhaust systems, and safety features on the building.

Fire Station 6 will have one fire engine and 12 firemen based out of it.

Waring says they are hiring for new members and those interested can apply on the town of Summerville’s website.

Overview

A rare winter storm affected southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia on January 3, 2018. The storm produced a variety of wintry precipitation, including snow, sleet and freezing rain. Charleston Airport (KCHS) measured 5.3 inches of snow, the 3rd greatest daily snowfall on record, just 0.1 inches shy of the 5.4 inches that fell during the 1973 storm. This made it the snowiest January on record at Charleston Airport and 2nd snowiest at Savannah Airport (KSAV). Due to the continued cold air in place even after the storm, the snow/ice remained on the ground in spots for many days causing significant disruptions to travel and commerce. Charleston Airport recorded snow on the ground for 5 consecutive days which is the most on record. Check out a visible satellite image on January 4 showing the snow left behind from the storm.

Technical Discussion

Arctic high pressure was in place at the surface ahead of an upper-level disturbance moving east across the Southeast U.S.. This caused surface low pressure to develop near the Bahamas, then move northward near the Gulf Stream and spread moisture across southeast Georgia and southeast South Carolina. Precipitation began in the predawn hours along the Georgia coast, then spread north and west during the day before tapering off across Georgia in the afternoon and in the evening across South Carolina. Surface wet-bulb temperatures were at or below freezing at the onset. However, due to a shallow, above-freezing layer just above the surface, as noted on the 18 UTC (1 PM EST) upper-air sounding at Charleston, precipitation began as primarily freezing rain with some sleet mixed in. Then, colder air moved into the area from the northwest during the afternoon as the surface low pressure system moved by offshore causing the precipitation to transition to snow. Aside from a brief burst of sleet that spread up the coast during the afternoon, snow was the predominant precipitation type until the end of the event. As is often the case during winter storms determining when this changeover would occur was one of the forecast challenges we faced.

Another challenging aspect to the forecast was determining the snow-to-liquid ratios (SLR) during the event, which typically are ~7:1 on average in this area, meaning that for every inch of liquid precipitation that falls there will be ~7 inches of snow. Of course, in reality this usually changes during an event as the amount of moisture and the vertical temperature profile of the atmosphere change.
