Businesses are requested to work with all your vendors and suppliers to get all large truck deliveries completed by 10:00 am. Remember, these suppliers work for you. They will do what you request if you tell them how important it is for these vehicles not to be impeding traffic flow on Main Street and Sunset after 10:00 am. If they don’t want to follow the rules, there are plenty of competitors who will. They will only do this if you, the customer makes it important to them. The restricted traffic flow causes issues for visitors and residents alike, both of which could be your customers. These trucks also take up valuable parking space intended for YOUR customers.

Grandfather Mountain Dollar Days
Grandfather Mountain will open its gates to High Country residents, employees, and their guests for only $3 each April 1-23, as the park’s “Dollar Days” promotion returns in time for spring.
The promotion allows anyone who lives or works in Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Watauga, or Wilkes counties — along with their guests traveling in the same vehicle — to visit at the discounted rate. Students attending a local college or university are also eligible for the discount.
Due to COVID-19, however, Dollar Days guests must book their visit online at www.grandfather.com. To take advantage of the reduced rate, guests must choose the Dollar Days admission rate when reserving their visit.
