OPP, Ala. (WDHN)—A mom-and-pop lawn and garden business in the western wiregrass has received
Alabama’s “Silver Retailer” of the year award for annual sales between five-and-20
Million dollars.

For the last 36 years, Joe Richburg says if you want people to shop with your business, you must offer
The service they can’t get anywhere else.

J.R.’s is one of 11 businesses honored by the Alabama Retailers Association.

A decade ago, Richburg says his businesses expanded when it went from only the sale and service of lawn equipment, to also including golf carts.

Richburg’s customer base now covers much of the Southeast.

By the way, the golf carts to be used during next month’s peanut festival at the National Fairgrounds in Dothan are provided by J.R.’s lawnmower shop.
