PINSON, Ala., Jan. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Carl C Store is proud to report a spike in business since hanging an orange U-Haul sign outside the shop.
The local convenience store at 9317 Hwy. 79 offers everything from snacks to lottery tickets. Now with the addition of U-Haul® trucks and trailers, the new U-Haul neighborhood dealer reports customer traffic is up.
"Simply having the orange U-Haul sign out front has brought a huge increase in sales," store manager Allan Dharani explained.
Reserve U-Haul items here by visiting http://www.uhaul.com/Locations/Truck-Rentals-near-Pinson-AL or calling (205) 681-5681 today. The Carl C Store is open 5 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Friday; 6 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday; and 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday.
Noor Dharani has been the owner of the Carl C Store for five years, serving the moving needs of rural Alabama some 20 miles northeast of Birmingham. Since other U-Haul dealers in the Pinson community are farther south and a bit closer to town, Dharani's location benefits residents on the north side of town near the Jefferson and Blount County border.
Trailer rentals between Carl C Store and Birmingham have been commonplace in recent months.
One of the biggest reasons Carl C Store teamed with U-Haul was the bonus of brand recognition and good advertising. It has certainly worked to this point, and the team at Carl C Store is ready to meet the demands of a growing customer base.
Since the Carl C Store is open every day of the week, it is a great place to become U-Haul Famous. Take your picture in front of a U-Haul product, send it in and your face could land on the side of a U-Haul truck.
