Couple follows family tradition with business openingPublished 6:05am Saturday, February 2, 2013
Adam and Ashley Tyler do not have to travel far, or go far from their roots, to get to work these days.
The couple will celebrate the grand opening of their business, Tyler’s Discount, on Monday. The business is in the same building where Ashley’s family operated Parker’s Discount in Newburg for many years.
In fact, many of the same types of items formerly available at Parker’s can be found at Tyler’s Discount.
“Our slogan is ‘Something for Everyone,’ and that really is true,” Ashley Tyler said.
Whether it’s tools, horse tack, blankets, hats, floral arrangements or many other giftware items, the Tylers believe it can be found in one location – in Newburg.
“My grandfather had this building so I have been coming here for all of my life so this feels like home,” Ashley Tyler said.
“I grew up doing this so it’s in my blood.”
Her husband, Adam, a fellow Russellville High School graduate, said he looks forward to meeting customers and enjoying time around people, as well as getting to work on custom made floral arrangements.
“We always wanted to run a business together and this allows us to be here close to home and have our children around and let it be a ‘true family business,” Adam Tyler said.
The couple said they look forward to spending time with their children, Abilene, 6, Johanna, 2, and Elijah, 1, while building new friendships with their customers.
Tyler’s Discount offers a wife variety of silk flowers and supplies, including 12 bloom open roses, 14 bloom tiger lilies, silk wedding bouquets, wedding pomanders, silk ferns, silk palm ferns and custom made decorations and arrangements.
“We have a little of everything here and we believe that our prices will be very competitive and make the drive to Newburg worthwhile for our customers.”
Tyler’s Discount is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
