7/16 Where in Clayton County am I?

Congratulations to Tanner Bolsinger of Garber,who correctly submitted the answer, "Norby's" and was selected the winner of last week's contest. Clayton County experts here is the clue for this week's "Where in Clayton County am I?" contest: Walking along the sidewalk of downtown Guttenberg, you might find yourself looking into a large display of appliances beneath the large business name painted along the building. Inside you’ll find much more than you were expecting. You can hear the sounds of paint being mixed as you walk into the store and see just how large the inside actually is. Lose yourself in the aisles of merchandise; you may be surprised to find items you didn’t even know you needed. The friendly and knowledgeable staff will give you a hand in picking out what you’re looking for or any services you may need. For any home improvement projects you have, this Guttenberg store has the goods and services you need.
