Hometown Variety to add FedEx services Friday PDF E-mail

Hometown Variety will expand its services beginning Friday as a new pack and ship location for FedEx.

Owner Troy Dixon said he has been considering the move for some time now and pulled the trigger as a way to provide a needed local service while also bringing more customers into the store.

"We can pack and ship, or customers can bring it in already packaged," Dixon said of the new service. "It will cost them less if they package it themselves, but if they want us to package it that will cost $2 extra."

All three FedEx services will be available, including FedEx Overnight, FedEx Express and FedEx Ground.

"All three drivers will pick up on a daily basis, five days a week, between 4 and 5 p.m.," Dixon explained.

Hometown Variety will be a unique location for FedEx, Dixon added, as it will be one of few locations in the nation in which the main business is not pack and ship.

"Our hope is to provide one more service in the community," he said. "I think it will be an exciting addition for us and a way to bring more people in the door."
