The Uncommon Cashiers Commons
by Ashley Stewart
Cashiers is spread out, there’s no way around it. Some people arrive at the Crossroads and assume that they’ve seen everything.
Not by a long shot. In fact, if they head north on Highway 107 for just a few hundred yards, they’ll come to a remarkable assemblage of shops, right on the road, but at once removed, like they’re just waiting to be discovered.
This is Cashiers Commons, a development that demands careful browsing if you’re looking to improve your home or improve yourself.
Just consider these possibilities:
If they don’t have it, you don’t need it. Zoller Hardware Gift and Gadget Emporium is celebrating 25 years of being an institution in Cashiers. Everything from gifts and hardware to paint and power equipment, they have everything you need to take care of your mountain getaway. They are also licensed dealers of Weber grills, Big Green Egg and Stihl equipment. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Just ask! They can order just about anything from their warehouse.
