The Forest Acres Restaurant & Merchant Association (FARMA) is a non-profit business organization, exclusive to Forest Acres SC, which strengthens the bonds between consumers and the community. Our mission is to be a proactive voice of business for the entire community by serving as a champion of community improvement initiatives; promoting member businesses and building relationships between members, residents, and city government; attract consumers from outside Forest Acres; and most importantly, to serve and support the residents of Forest Acres.
Strobler opened their doors in October of 1996 in the former AJ’s location on Devine Street in the heart of Shandon, SC. The store has been locally owned and operated ever since by George Fisher. George understands the importance of customer service and dependability, something that has helped keep him in business for over 13 years.
“I live near the store, my family goes to church downtown, and my kids are in school just down the road, so we really feel like our store is not only a part of this community but also an extension of us. When you have been in business this long, you really start to develop relationships with your customers.”
The new showroom on Forest Drive is much larger – 15,000 square feet of accessible space for customers, including an on site clearance center and warehouse.
