Welcome to Huck & Peck, The name sake, The experience, The .com
Posted on March 21 2018
My name is Michael Turner, President at Huck & Peck. I'd like to tell you little about Huck & Peck, A name that for us represents the past and the future.
Huck and Peck were my grandparents. They were hard working, big on family, lovely Southern Folks. Huck grew up as Charles in Decatur, GA and earned his nickname from family and friends after he ran away from home (actually up a tree in the front yard). Peck grew up as Margaret in a small town near Macon, GA. She earned her nickname from her grandfather because her persistent questions reminded him of a woodpecker. Huck and Peck met in Atlanta and fell in love; they discovered they both had family nicknames that would stay with them the rest of their lives. They moved back to Peck's family home in middle Georgia after Huck returned from the Army Air Corps during WWII. They were in the direct sales in the 50's and 60's, Huck traveled tirelessly to Five and Dime stores and paint and sundry stores, Peck kept the books. It is Huck and Peck's style, work ethic and hospitality I hope most to mirror in our esthetic and day to day opperation.
"Venturing out" was undeniable in my early years, a travel bug and wonder lust given to me in part by my Mother, India Broyles, Huck and Peck's daughter. I studied Chinese Language as early as 1986 knowing someday I might travel around the World. Three decades later and over 100 combined trips to China, India, Thailand, and Vietnam, I was no longer impressed with Frequent Flyers miles, long car rides to dirty factories and stomach parasites. I wanted a store to call my own, in this growing town, Chattanooga TN.
The future is a mix of Brick and Mortar and .com. I can not imagine a time where folks do not want to shop a store first hand, however I understand the convenience of "shopping online" and the ability to "learn" so much more about products, trends and options online.
Huck and Peck is dedicated to Chattanooga, to friendly service, and to offering as much quality for the price that you will feel you got more than your monies worth.
Thank you for shopping, visiting and buying from Huck & Peck. Our Home to your Home, in Chattanooga or around the World.
