G&G Feed and Seed closing for good


By Mike McCombs

G&G Feed and Seed, a fixture at 3 Broad River Blvd., in Beaufort, is closing its doors for good Saturday, May 21.

All merchandise is discounted 10 to 15% now and could go lower before Saturday.

Hazel Pender has been the manager for the 17 years Guy Kirkland has owned the business. Not to mention, she worked for two previous owners in the same location, as well.

Kirkland wasn’t available to speak to The Island News on Tuesday. But Pender said poor business isn’t the reason for G&G’s closing.

“We’ve got the business,” Pender said. “We’ve been fortunate to have good business here, people are loyal customers.”

Pender said a family issue, instead, is forcing Kirkland to close the store.

“So we’re having to close, but not because we want to,” she said.

She also laughed at the rumors that Tractor Supply had eaten into G&G’s business.

“We’ve been doing excellent business,” Pender said. “Everybody thought the Tractor Supply put us out of business, but we’ve been doing excellent business. They couldn’t touch us.”

In addition to a variety of animal feed, seed, fertilizers, hay, dog houses and kennels, pet supplies, plants, outdoor equipment, chickens and other varieties of fowl G&G sells, there is a dog grooming and kennel business on site, as well. According to G&G’s Facebook page, that business will remain open. For appointments, call 843-321-1286 or 843-694-3272.

But the Feed and Seed customers will have to find another option.

“I have been suggesting most people go to Jasper Feed & Seed in Ridgeland,” Pender said. “Or check out the Feed and Seed (on Lady’s Island).
