It’s Only Natural Health Food Store In Transition. Tom and Joyce Tallmadge, owners and operators of It’s Only Natural Health Food Store, have closed the doors of their health food store on Lady’s Island and are transitioning to a home-based personal services and internet business. Joyce explained their decision on their web site as follows: “We are both excited and a little sad to share with you our decision to join with others in the 21st Century and move toward personal services and an internet-based business. We are closing the store front of It’s Only Natural on Lady’s Island. Tom and I have so enjoyed serving you, our loyal customers, over the years and hope that we can continue to do so. As to our internet-based business, we will still have the same phone number and email address plus an additional phone number (843-812-1921). Also, we will be at the Lowcountry Flea Market on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., 5 Parker Drive, next to the Drive In.” For details regarding their new business, please visit www.healthfoodsc.com.
Golf Course Reopens In Pleasant Point Plantation. During 2005, the Country Club of Beaufort, which was located in the Pleasant Point community, ceased operations. Over the next few years, the golf course properties deteriorated to the point of being an eyesore. During late 2009, the clubhouse and golf course properties were acquired by the Pleasant Point Property Owners’ Association. In early 2012, the golf course was leased to a group of local investors who formed TGC (The Golf Course) a management company. Following a year of redevelopment, TGC at Pleasant Point reopened the 6,602 yard, 18 hole course for public play. We have learned that TGC offers both unlimited golfing plans for the die-hard golfer and special loyalty programs for all golfers. Visit www.tgcppp.com for course information. We extend our compliments to Pleasant Point and TGC for a job well done.
