Community embraces Williams Feed and Pet Company
The community in and around the Williams area has shown their support for the newly opened Williams Feed and Pet Company, LLC. The store, which opened Nov. 14, has already sold over seven tons of product to area residents, according to owners. The new feed and pet store is located at 283 Garland Prairie Road at exit 167 and is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Owners Robert and Tansy Kuerner, along with William and Cece Griffith, invite Williams and county residents to check out what the Williams Feed and Pet Co. has to offer. Williams Feed and Pet Co. plan to offer bulk sales for what Kuerner called a marginal profit in order to be competitive with other stores.
"We like to think that we are a full service feed store," said Robert Kuerner. "We carry all the equine, cat, and just everything you can think of for pets, from lower to upper end dog foods and cat foods, holistic foods and all possible grain products that we could think of for the store."
Grain products include food for horses, rabbits, goats, pigs and other animals, and include grasses and alfalfa and even food for "non-flight" birds such as ostriches, peacocks and more.
The Kuerner and Griffith families decided to open the store in order to provide an alternative to long Flagstaff trips for pet food.
"Being from this area, my wife and I have lived here for going on five years. Bill and Cece have been coming up here for many years, they have a cabin over in Sherwood Forest, and now live locally here in Williams as we do," Kuerner said. "We had horses and all the livestock ourselves and were finding ourselves traveling to Flagstaff for a full service feed store. Many gracious people in Williams encouraged us to put this up. I'm proud to say, since the 14th, we've been embraced by the community and sold over seven tons of product already."
William Griffith said plans are also in the works for a delivery service.
"We haven't quite figured out the logistics and what everything would cost, but we want to be fair to everybody," Griffith said.

Bardwell completes Koren training
Dr. George Bardwell of Williams Chiropractic has completed Koren Specific Technique (KST) training in hopes of helping the community.
KST was developed and taught by world-renowned chiropractor, author and educator Tedd Koren, D.C. With KST, there is no twisting, turning, "cracking" or "popping" of joints. KST promotes gentle, specific corrections to the spine and structural system, said Bardwell.
He added that those suffering from sciatica, migraine, colitis, chronic pain, thoracic hump, poor posture, disc problems, depression, dyslexia, sleeping difficulties, autism and many other conditions have benefited from KST.
To find out more about KST, call (928) 635-9115 or e-mail questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
