ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Alpharetta Retail Month begins on May 1 and many of the city’s top retailers are participating. Residents can buy an ARM card from the Alpharetta Chamber of Commerce and save 20 percent at participating retailers. ARM cards are available now and cost $20. A portion of the proceeds for each card will go straight to The Drake House, a local charity offering housing and education programs for mothers experiencing homelessness.
One retailer that is participating is The Avalon’s Onward Reserve. With graduation season around the corner, Onward Reserve is the perfect place for a top-notch gift. Here are five graduation gifts you will find at this acclaimed retailer.
1. Bison Leather Valet Tray

The durable leather surface makes for a great addition to any car ride or airline flight.
