December Business of the Month: BAILES COBB

The Hart County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that the December Business of the Month is Bailes Cobb Department Store. Bailes Cobb has been a retailer in Hartwell for over 87 years. They are a 3rd generation family owned store with a wide array of upscale men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, plus gifts and home décor. This store is located at the heart of our Downtown and they are a key piece of our downtown culture. With their fashion shows supporting local causes, their family and staff volunteering throughout our community and the owners, Mary Lynn and Earl Johnson’s commitment to bringing fresh fun fashions to our small town, you can see why Bailes Cobb is so deserving of this honor. We thank them for always giving back to our community and being such a great part of our Downtown!

We salute Bailes Cobb Department Store for being the December Chamber Business of the Month.
