Finding a certified, experienced locksmith is no easy task. Sure, dozens of companies out there will dispatch an indifferent “technician” that offers “quick” solutions when you lose your keys.

If you are a business owner in Georgia, you have the weighty responsibility of protecting your patrons and securing your businesses’ assets. The most common way for entrepreneurs to keep their business safe is by having a commercial locksmith in Sandy Springs install quality, reliable locks on every entry point of your storefront. But, unfortunately, many business owners take the least amount of effort necessary when it comes to protecting their business.
Whether you own several franchise locations or have a single storefront, it only takes one break-in to make you realize the importance of installing high-quality locks for your commercial property. Sadly, at that point, it’s too late – your ability to provide for your family and pay your bills has been compromised. For that reason alone, it’s always better to be proactive about your businesses’ security rather than reactive.
At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, our commercial door lock services are designed to ensure that your assets and your customers are protecting 24-hours a day, seven days a week. We will always take the time to walk you through your options, explaining the pros and cons of each security solution so that you can make an informed decision.

Installing high-quality door locks for your business is one of the best ways to protect your assets and your commercial property. At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, we offer many commercial door lock options from the best brands in our industry. From reliable maintenance service on your current Grade 3 locks to new Grade 1 commercial door lock installation, our team of commercial locksmiths is ready to help.
If your businesses’ locks are old and need proper maintenance or corrective repair services, it’s always best to work with a team of experts. From re-keying services to fixing stuck or broken locks, our commercial locksmiths are only a phone call away.

A commercial-grade CCTV system installed by Arrowhead Lock & Safe allows you to monitor all activities that take place under your businesses’ roof.

With a commercial-grade control access system from Arrowhead Lock & Safe, business owners can easily restrict certain areas within their store, prevent physical key duplication, record entry history, and even simplify employee turnover.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grading system was developed years ago to standardize a testing procedure to measure the durability and strength of a door lock. This grading system applies to both residential and commercial door locks. Composed of three different grades, the ANSI grading system gives homeowners and business owners a good idea of lock quality and reliability. ANSI examines six different qualities to determine a lock’s grade:
These locks offer the highest level of security and are most often used by institutions like hospitals, schools, and even museums. These locks also have the highest life expectancy, though they can be much more complex and require an expert residential or commercial locksmith in cityname to install. In today’s day and age, many more homeowners are opting for Grade 1 locks (like electronic locks) for the most peace of mind. This classification of lock must hold up against 800,000 cycles, six door strikes and a 360-pound weight test.
These locks are great for residential areas with more foot traffic, like a door that leads to an apartment complex or suite of rooms. These locks can also suffice for small businesses that need a higher level of security than Grade 3 locks. Use these locks when you want to secure access to areas with valuable equipment or sensitive documents. This classification of lock requires 400,000 cycles, four door strikes, and a 250-pound weight test.
This grade of lock is best suited for residential purposes and is considered standard door hardware. This kind of lock is the least expensive and should never be used in a high-traffic area like a lobby or storefront. However, these locks would be suitable for areas without much foot traffic like storage closets or areas without expensive merchandise. Because these locks are easiest to bypass, consider upgrading your Grade 3 locks with anti-bump and anti-pick technology. This classification of lock requires 200,000 lock cycles, two door strikes, and a 150-pound weight test.
A famous animator and movie director once said: “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” This quote rings especially true when it comes to protecting your home or business with the best security solutions in Georgia.

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Plans to build a large subdivision in the middle of an already established Sandy Springs neighborhood aren’t sitting well with those who live nearby.
A developer has proposed purchasing eight homes on property off Johnson Ferry Road, not far from Roswell Road, in order to build roughly 50 new detached homes.
“We want them to know that our neighborhood is special,” said Rebekah Barr, president of the Glenridge Hammond Neighborhood Association in an interview with Channel 2′s Mike Petchenik. “The location is amazing. We have a lot of young families.”
Barr said her neighbors are concerned about the proposed density of the project, which would require a zoning change from the city of Sandy Springs.
“The character of our neighborhood is supposed to be protected, where we have half acre, residential lots,” she said. “And this obviously compromises that protected nature.”
Barr said a project with that many homes could generate too much traffic, especially since the neighborhood already sits just a few yards from busy Roswell Road.
“Now this will take what would have been eight drivers, let’s say 16 drivers, and now make it 90 drivers,” she said. “So that just adds that much more cut-through to the neighborhood.
At a meeting this week, Barr and her neighbors met with the developer, Hedgewood Homes, to learn more about the project and to express opposition to it.
“They made it seem like they cared what the neighbors thought, and they didn’t want to do something that did not have the support of the neighborhood,” she said. “But you know, if they’re in business and, and business is there to make money, and if the project is good enough, then they probably will go through with it.”
In an email, Don Donnelly, of Hedgewood Homes, sent Petchenik answers to questions about the project:
“Our plan is very similar to projects we have produced in Alpharetta, Buckhead, Woodstock, Norcross and City of Atlanta—an infill project that will provide new upscale homes within walking distance of City Hall and their amphitheater, restaurants, shopping and offices. We know that new home buyers want this type of home with private gardens, public green spaces and walkable to urban amenities like Sandy Springs offers. The new proposed City multi-use trail will run along the front of our proposed project from City Hall as you can see on the attached site plan.”
Donnelly told Petchenik traffic studies for similar projects showed a negligible affect to traffic patterns in those areas.
“The density is much less than the new apartments recently constructed 1 block away and is a good transition to the existing large-lot homes that were built ~70 years ago.”
Donnelly told Petchenik community opposition could play a role in whether the company files an application to move forward with the project.
“Of course, community opposition to any project is a big focus for us. Our zoning approval for the Buckhead project last month was a result of us addressing Buckhead neighborhood concerns and so similarly, we will continue to work with the Sandy Springs neighborhood to continue to improve this project.”
A Sandy Springs City spokesman told Petchenik the city had “no position” on the project.
“It’s too early in the process,” said Dan Coffer. “The zoning report and recommendation won’t be issued until after a submittal of their application materials and a review and analysis is properly undertaken by staff.”

Mutation Brewing Company is the new brewery and taproom headed to Sandy Springs courtesy of Jack Poole and Chris and Michael Shapiro. The avid home-brewers have set up shop at 5825 Roswell Road NE, just down the street from Las Tortas Locas and Gyro Bros.
“We were homebrewers for many years and we wanted to bring our passion for craft beer to the larger Sandy Springs market,” Co-Founder Jack Poole shared in an email with What Now Atlanta. “We wanted to provide the market with fresh, exciting new flavors.”
The brewery won’t specialize in any one variety of beer; the brewers have gained experience brewing across a wide-range, so you can expect to enjoy all the big hitters when it comes to beer as well as seltzer. “Chris and Michael’s mother was born and raised in Peru so we will be integrating some local Peruvian drink varieties and ingredients into a few of our beers,” Poole added.
A recent update via social media shares that the brewing company is beyond the permitting phase and undergoing construction at its new home. 5825 Roswell Road is a 9,137 square-foot building, which includes 2,200 square-feet of covered patio, uncovered patio, and rooftop bar space. The brewery will feature a U-shaped bar able to accommodate 30 patrons. In addition to a private dining area for special events, the team at Mutation Brewing has built a speakeasy with its own bar, style, and seating area hidden from the rest of the brewery’s operations. All-in-all the brewery, which is dog and kid friendly (very important features for a good brewery, we must say), will seat 250 patrons at full capacity.
Oh, and plan to enjoy some Spiced Right Barbecue while you’re sipping on a cold beer—Mutation Brewing Company has partnered with the Historic Roswell Neighborhood staple that’s been around since 2004.
Poole says the brewery hopes to open by mid-to-late December, although delays may push the opening to early January. Find Mutation Brewing Company on social media for updates.
A small black bear that spent three weeks roaming Sandy Springs was caught in a neighborhood along Heards Ferry Road on Thursday afternoon and was headed to north Georgia on Friday, July 2.“We believe this bear is the same bear we’ve heard reports for about three weeks.

A small black bear that spent three weeks roaming Sandy Springs was caught in a neighborhood along Heards Ferry Road on Thursday afternoon and was headed to north Georgia on Friday, July 2.
“We believe this bear is the same bear we’ve heard reports for about three weeks. The beer has been in the Sandy Springs area, bouncing all over the place,” said Kaitlin Goode with the Georgia DNR Wildlife Resources Division Urban Wildlife Program.
The bear was seen in the neighborhood near Fire Station No. 53 on Raider Drive, and the Sandy Springs Fire Department contacted the DNR on July 1 around 3 p.m., Goode said. The firefighters kept an eye on the bear until the DNR could arrive.
Goode said this gave them the opportunity to tranquilize and relocate the bear.
She said the male black bear was probably 2½ years old and weighed approximately 120 pounds, which put it on the small side.
“This time of year is when breeding season happens. Larger bears kick smaller bears out,” Goode said.
When metro residents see black bears wandering in their neighborhoods or in other unusual places, they are trying to find their own home range.
“We try and let bears find their own way out of the city. But sometimes they don’t. This bear had been in the city limits of Sandy Springs for three weeks now,” she said.
After that length of time the DNR would try to intervene and relocate it to a more suitable habitat, she said.
On Friday the DNR tagged the bear, gave it an identifying tattoo and put a GPS collar on it so they can see where it goes after its release.
“It’s on its way to be released now. I handed it off to another biologist, who will take it to the very north part of Georgia,” Goode said early Friday afternoon.
Being Bear Wise
Sandy Springs residents should give a bear lots of space if they see one. Goode said to make sure the bears just pass on through, residents should keep trash inside, empty bird feeders and keep their pets inside.
The best site for homeowners and business owners to find simple tips to discourage bears from hanging out in their yard, neighborhood or area is the BearWise website (bearwise.org), said Melissa Cummings of the Georgia DNR.

This commitment to serve and my financial expertise should provide benefit to the Council.

I want to elicit thoughts and opinions from all constituents within Sandy Springs. I have really enjoyed meeting so many people and listening to their views on a variety of issues. It is through active listening from a diverse group that the best solutions are found. I want to take that approach for my constituents.

SANDY SPRINGS, GA — The U.S. posted its weakest job recovery month of the year in September, with just 194,000 non-farm jobs added to the economy.
The September jobs report was even worse than that in August, when 366,000 jobs were created, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The national unemployment rate dropped 0.4 percentage points to 4.8 percent despite the September disappointment.
The latest available local unemployment figures are for August; that rate improved since July in the Sandy Springs area and continues to be lower than it was the beginning of the pandemic.
The Fulton County unemployment rate was 3.7 percent in August, down from 3.9 percent in July. That reflected significant improvement from August 2020, when the unemployment rate stood at 9.2 percent.
The August unemployment rate in Fulton County was higher than the Georgia rate of 3.1 percent, according to the latest local figures from the BLS.
Nationally, 17.4 million jobs have been added back to the economy since April 2020. Still, the country is down 5 million positions (3.3 percent) from pre-pandemic levels.
The jobs report was likely affected negatively by multiple crises, according to The Washington Post. Parts of the country were reeling from Hurricane Ida's devastating damage. Wildfires in California have also caused business disruption. Coronavirus cases were also much higher in early to mid-September than they are now.
Average hourly wages continued to climb in September, with a 17-cent gain to $30.85. Hourly wages have grown for six months in a row as employers look to fill vacant positions.
Employees have been more willing than ever to leave their employers. A record 4.3 million employees quit their jobs in August, according to the BLS.
The leisure/hospitality and professional/business service industries led the way for September job gains with 74,000 and 60,000 jobs, respectively. Retail trade jobs increased by 56,000 jobs after two months of little change.
