Teresa and Todd Murphree, owners of Murphree’s Wine & Spirits, are self professed animal lovers and to honor their love of all things four-legged they are doing something special to honor that.
Today (Nov. 27) the couple will donate 10 percent of the gross total sales to the Stephens County Humane Society.
“We have worked for several years … with the Humane Society and Duncan Regional Hospital and a few good causes we wanted to support,” Teresa said. “This is a way to do something positive and promote our business.”
The duo came up with an interesting plan for a donation.
“We’ll just pull our register receipt at the end of the day — and we’re going to stay open until 10 p.m. that day for the convenience of our costumers,” she said. “When we pull the receipt and figure it up and write a check to the Stephens County Humane Society. They can use the money as they see fit. It just seems this time of year the shelters are overrun with pets and we want to try to help.”
The couple also donates product to other causes at events.
“Duncan’s my home and we feel like small business owners it’s … upon us to try and give back to the community,” she said.
Murphree’s Wine & Spirits is located at 1607 Highway 81.
