The Columbia heat can be a hard thing to beat!

One of the joys of living in the South is the melting heat and humidity one will encounter between the months of late April to late September. No matter how many air conditioning units, fans and shorts you have, the heat will still get to you.

But have no fear Cromer’s is here! To combat the heat, we are introducing our deliciously refreshing smoothies!

Enjoying a wild berry or strawberry banana smoothie is the perfect treat on a hot summer day. Served with or without whipped cream, you’ll definitely be coming back for more of the sweet, refreshing treat!

A Closet or an Office?

11 November, 2012

In our building on Assembly   Street, there was an open platform elevator where 50 pound bags of raw peanuts could be hoisted up to the second floor warehouse. To the delight of my sisters and me, our dad would sometimes allow us to ride up to the warehouse sitting on top of those bags of peanuts when we came to Columbia. My dad’s office was under the stairwell that was access to the second floor. In this tiny space were his desk, file cabinet, a very large safe and a rotating fan to cool the space in the summer. Every time I walk into my office today, I think of how my granddaddy and daddy ran Cromer’s from very cramped quarters and in all likelihood would have four desks in my office!
