A grand opening celebration for three businesses in the Cooper community will be held March 29 from 2–5 p.m. at the corner of Highway 31 and County Road 24 in Cooper.

The owners of 37 Auto Sales, Pennies from Heaven and Kromer Automotive decided to hold the event to let more people know about their businesses.

“We just want people to know that we’re here,” said Staci Woodfin of 37 Auto Sales.

The businesses are adjacent to each other in the Cooper community, which is located between Clanton and Verbena in Chilton County.

The event is free, open to families and includes outdoor activities such as a “car cruise,” inflatables for children, refreshments and live music from Nashville recording artist Brent Harrison.

Woodfin said the car cruise is a car show featuring vintage cars from various car clubs.

In addition, all three businesses will be open for customers during the grand opening.

Several weeks ago, owners Lyman Woodfin and Jerome Barrington opened 37 Auto Sales, a used car business, Staci Woodfin said.

37 Auto Sales is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Pennies from Heaven opened in December 2013 and offers used furniture and other household items.

The owners are Dan and Mildred Albright.

The shop is open Monday–Saturday and is located at 11586 County Road 24.

Kromer Automotive moved from its former location in Clanton to 11584 County Road 24, near 37 Auto Sales and Pennies from Heaven, in January.

Buddy Kromer is the owner of Kromer Automotive, an auto repair and service business.
