Spotlight on Business - Holmes Security Systems

Holmes Security Systems is part of a 104 year old, family owned company, founded in Fayetteville, NC in 1908. We have offices in both Fayetteville and Wilmington, NC. Here’s how we run our business:

We are a security company, not just an alarm company. We don’t run $99 specials or offer “one size fits all” systems. Instead, we work with our customers to determine how best to protect their home, families, and businesses, realizing that an alarm system is only part of the solution.

We are a life safety company – we look at all aspects of keeping your home, family and business safe. We don’t shy away from recommending monitored smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and personal panic and medical alert devices.

We don’t have long term contracts – we won’t ask you to sign a three or five year agreement. Our philosophy is that we want you to do business with us because you want to do business with us.
We are an Authorized Preferred Honeywell Dealer, with the additional First Alert Professional title in Wilmington. Honeywell is the world-wide leader in security solutions.

And finally, an effective security system must be monitored. We own and operate our own state-of-the-art, UL Listed Central Monitoring Station right here in southeastern NC. It’s staffed by trained personnel 24-7, and has achieved the 5 Diamond Certification from the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA). In fact, it is the only such center in Eastern NC. Local monitoring means faster response.

We are A+ rated by the Better Business Bureau, and we offer all of the benefits of a national company, but the money stays in our community. Local ownership, local service, local monitoring, and no long term contracts, plus a definite price advantage.

Spotlight on Business - Island Wellness Market

Island Wellness Market opened in June 2012 and became the first and only dedicated health food store on Pleasure Island. Owners Amy and Chris Sawyer have lived in Carolina Beach for over 10 years and are excited to be serving their local community.

Island Wellness Market’s mission is to help redefine wellness by educating customers on how to live a more healthy, balanced life. They offer an organic smoothie and juice bar, high quality vitamins, herbs, and nutritional supplements, organic and cruelty free skincare and beauty items, healthy foods, including organic, Non-GMO, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan selections, green and eco-friendly household items, and a small selection of local artwork and merchandise to help support other local entrepreneurs.

They are also a pick up location for Down East Connect, a service that connects the Wilmington area with local farms within a 60-mile radius via online ordering and delivery to various locations, which now includes Carolina Beach.

Island Wellness Market offers educational classes and workshops on a regular basis, and will be collaborating with other local businesses in the New Year to bring additional workshops to inspire healthy living and fulfillment.

Their goals are to provide exceptional customer care and recommendations for optimum health, to support local and organic farms that keep our earth and water pure, to teach the benefits of proper nutrition and total wellness of body mind, and spirit, and to support and strengthen the health and wellness of our island.
