Buck’s Surplus

If you are looking for military surplus goods, or airsoft or paintball supplies, you need to check out Buck’s Surplus, 25 S. Main Street in Cedar Springs. Owner Jerrod (Buck) Roberts opened the business June 19.

According to Roberts, his business provides various types of military items ranging from vintage to modern day fatigues, packs, hydration systems, boots and tactical gear. Their fatigues come in a variety of colors, from OD to MultiCam. They offer duty belts and pouches for enforcement personnel as well. There is a 10 percent discount for all veterans, police and fire department personnel.

Along with military and enforcement gear, they also supply items for the airsoft and paintball community. “We offer quality airsoft and paintball guns, ammo, batteries, CO2 canisters, and spare magazines,” noted Roberts.

They hope to later put in a consignment store in the back where people can bring in used sporting items and clothing, and also plan to install a CO2 filling station to better serve the paintball community.

Business hours are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Tuesday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 616-520-5218 for more information.

Rosie’s Ice Cream treats library

Rosie’s Ice Cream (formerly Jo Jo’s Cone Zone) in Sand Lake, presented the Sand Lake/Nelson Twp. Library with an extra-special treat last month. They gave a money gift of $220 as part of the library plant sale and auction fundraiser that was held June 12. Rosie’s donated 10 percent of all food purchases that day to the library.

Co-owners Kathy Ortiz, Craig Moore, and Manager Laura Grice are all advocates of the library. “We love the library,” said Grice. “The library connects our entire community together through a love of reading.”

Ortiz shares Grice’s enthusiasm. “This gift is more than a percentage of sales. We gave a personal gift as well. We’re honored to be a part of this community and support the library.”

“The honor is all ours,” said Jennifer Sylvester, library plant sale co-chair. “The owners of Rosie’s have been supportive of this event since day one. Who would’ve predicted such a positive response?…We’re really grateful for all the support from Rosie’s and the community.”
