At our inception 20 years ago, we chose to be different. Unlike other news organizations, we made the decision to provide in-depth, regional reporting free to anyone who wanted access to it. We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home. If you are able, please support The Smoky Mountain News.

The Smoky Mountain News is a wholly private corporation. Reader contributions support the journalistic mission of SMN to remain independent. Your support of SMN does not constitute a charitable donation. If you have a question about contributing to SMN, please contact us.

Local customers are much appreciated

To the Editor:

We would like to express our gratitude for the opportunity to serve you and say thank you for your business. These last few months have been challenging for everyone and especially for small businesses like Waynesville Tire. We have been blessed by our loyal customers.

We have had to reconfigure our ways of meeting your needs and at the same time striving to keep you — our customers — and our employees safe and healthy. This has required us to give you curb service since March. We will be continuing these same practices in the coming weeks for the health and safety of all.

We can never tell you how much we appreciate your patience and understanding and we look forward to serving you for years to come. 

And remember, we can’t do anything about COVID-19 but we can still cure baldness.

Jeff McCall, owner

Waynesville Tire
