Shopping Small is Supporting Local

These past few months have presented a unique challenge to our local communities, and we grieve with those who are struggling with the pandemic.

At the same time, we have seen so much support for small, local businesses. We have been serving our community for the last 45 years, and this makes us hopeful that we will be here for 45 more.

Our small business has survived on the support of our local communities, and we are here to continue to support our customers despite these challenging times. We hope to continue being a part of our community for many years to come, so we ask that when you are shopping, make Higgins your one-stop shop for all your alternative energy needs instead of a big box store. We can provide you with all the conveniences of a big box store without the hassle.

We have no lines to get inside.

You will not have to fight the crowds to get into our store like you would at a big box store. No waiting outside, no tape lines on the sidewalk, just walk in and shop! We have plenty of space for social distancing with less crowds.

We provide service with a smile (even from behind a mask).

Our service team is operating Monday through Friday, and our store is open Tuesday through Saturday. We are offering home delivery options, curbside pickup, and contact-free payment and shopping options. We are here for whatever your alternative energy needs may be and are here to answer your questions and provide you with the service you expect.

We make your shopping experience safe.

We have all the same safety procedures you have come to expect from big box stores, and we are working our hardest to ensure your shopping experience is as safe as possible with the quality you expect. We are requesting masks to be worn in store, sanitizing surfaces, taking our employees’ temperatures daily, and more. You can find our COVID-19 safety procedures on our website here.

We have contact-free and curbside pickup options.

We have always catered to our customers’ needs. Due to recent events, the needs of our customers have shifted, so we shifted with them. When you shop with us, mention if you are interested in home delivery or curbside pickup options available for many of your purchases. We also have contact-free payment and shopping options in store or online, expanded to make your shopping easier and safer.

We appreciate your support.

Every time you walk in our door, find us online or on social media, or spend a single dollar with us, you become part of our family. Your support is how we stay in business and how we invest back into our community. Remember to like and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay engaged and up to date with our service and products. We recognize that our customers come first, and we strive to make our customer our number one priority.

Next time you run out to a big box store to grab a part for your stove, a grill, or pellets, remember that shopping small is supporting local. At Higgins, we have all the products and services you need during this coronavirus pandemic, without the hassle of big box store regulations. We’re always here if you have any questions, please reach out to us and we’ll take care of your alternative energy needs.
