Best Movers in Little Rock – 501-562-5700

Education has always been important to Arkansas families, but this is a good time for us to be proud. Governor Beebe recently held a summit on job creation, focusing on the future of little rock. He applauded the efforts of U of A Community College in Monticello among others for creating programs to prepare Arkansas students for the realities of the job market.

In addition to the college level applause here at home, there’s much to be proud of because of one high school student’s efforts being recognized on the national stage. Carl Richmond of Mills High School is a smart guy. Part of the Scholars Program, a program for very gifted students, he scored extremely highly on the PSAT. Because of his achievement, Carl became eligible to compete in the National Merit Scholarship Program. As can be expected, Carl’s achievement led him to become a semi-finalist. While the final results are to come, we at All My Sons Moving & Storage wish him the best of luck.

The first and only Outlet Mall in the state of Arkansas is set to open in the summer of 2015 in Little Rock. A 30 acre plot of land at the Gateway Town Center has been purchased by New England Development(NED) and they have already began to prepare the land for construction. Currently they are clearing trees, preparing drainage lines, and setting up utilities as well. Actual building construction is set to begin in August of 2014. CDI Contractors LLC of Little Rock have been hired to oversee the construction process.

The Outlets at Little Rock will house around 75 stores, and bring in 1,000 new jobs into the area. New England Development has yet to mention any specific store that will be in these outlets, but future customers can expect a vast amount of options. The outlets will also have a food court and a variety of sit down and fast casual dining establishments. New England Development hopes that the mall will be more of a destination, where people can spend a good amount of time at, rather then running in and out.

Due to its location, the development group is very optimistic about the success of the new outlet mall. There is currently a Bass Pro Shop in the Gateway Town Center which draws a large amount of customers to the shopping center. The mall will also be positioned at the intersection of two highways, I-30 and I-430, and NED feels that this location will pull in great foot traffic for the outlets.

Although the Outlets at Little Rock are the first and only outlets in Arkansas, it reflects a new trend in the retail industry. Many companies are moving towards an emphasis on outlets, because it allows them to provide a product for all customers at multiple price levels.

Former President Bill Clinton announced yesterday that he will be donating two dollars for every one dollar that is donated to the Clinton Foundation through Saturday.

The Clinton Foundation is a great one if you ask your Little Rock local moving professionals. Donations to the Clinton Foundation go toward helping individuals and organizations in need. Among other efforts, donated funds are responsible for improved medical treatment for people in need, as well as for helping small local businesses gain foundation in developing markets.

The “Occupy Wall Street” movement has gained national recognition in little more than two months, and though the Occupy protests are of controversial subject matter, the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations has recently donated one thousand dollars to the Occupy Little Rock division of the nationwide faction. Your Little Rock movers were surprised to read the news, but the AFL-CIO did provide donations so that Occupy Little Rock participants may prepare for the impending winter weather.

Keep these many factors in mind if you plan on moving into a tent soon to join the other Occupiers.
