It is with very mixed emotions that Mike and I are announcing that we have decided to sell Cool Savannah Tours & Gifts. We cherish the relationships we have formed both professionally and personally while ‘at the helm’ of our little slice of heaven down on Bay St. With the birth of our grandson in Boston and a recent health scare (everyone is ok!), we have decided to scale back on our activities. Along with our daughter, Tracy, we will remain operating Cool Savannah Photography. We will also take some time to focus on our candle and scented product line. And, while Winston is disappointed that he will not be hanging out daily at the store, we have created a Facebook page for him so he can keep in touch with everyone! He is ‘Winston of Savannah’ on facebook. Please look him up and ‘like’ his page. We proudly continue to call Savannah our home and will remain active in both the business and social communities.
From the very bottom of our hearts, we wish to thank each and every one of you for welcoming us, supporting us and becoming like family to us. Please continue to stay in touch. This is not the end of our book, but simply the beginning of a new chapter.
Please join us in welcoming Jeff Mitchell as the new owner of Cool Savannah Tours & Gifts. Jeff is 25 yrs old, has a beautiful fiancé, Ivey, and an adorable 4 yr old son, Jase. All 3 have been born and raised in the Savannah, Ga area. Jeff recently transitioned out of the Army where he served 7 years in Special Operations. In 2013 he was the Soldier of the Year for all of Special Operations. He is 6th Generation military so it was a big deal to be serving, but due to an injury sustained overseas, he is medically retired and now on to a new path in life. Ivey is a full time nursing student and spends her free time with their son and riding her horses. They love animals! Their son is just recently single due to his girlfriend at daycare moving away. He enjoys watching his favorite cartoons and being outdoors with Dad. Jeff is very excited about purchasing Cool Savannah and cannot wait to build new relationships! He is an ‘open door policy’ type of person and always willing to help others. Jeff, Ivey and Jase are excited about this AWESOME journey and are looking forward to doing business with you all!
Mike and I will remain at Cool Savannah Tours & Gifts for the next several weeks as we assist with a smooth transition to the new ownership. If you get a chance to stop by, we’d love to see you and I’m sure Jeff would love to meet you! Thank you again for your support.
Brenda, Mike, Tracy & Winston
