Santa at Begor’s Supply

— There are cookies and milk.

Pony rides are also available, and balsam trees are waiting to be decorated.

But most importantly, Santa and Mrs. Claus are going to spend time with the children.

“This is just something we do because of our love of Christmas,” said Norma Begor, one of the owners of Begor’s Supply located at 2698 State Route 11 in Mooers. “We also like to give back to the community and show our customers how much we appreciate them.”

On Saturday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m. to noon, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at the Mooers business.

“We have done this for several years,” Begor said. “Last year we added the pony cart ride, and that was a big hit.”

Begor’s began the tradition many years ago for the children of the area.

“It is just our way of thanking the community and enjoying watching the children come to see Santa Claus,” Begor said.

She said families should arrive early if children want to see Santa Claus, and they should remember to bring their cameras.

“We had a super crowd last year,” Begor said.

Begor added that her favorite part of the entire event is watching children react to Santa Claus.

“It is priceless,” she said. “We have done it for so many years, and it has been an awesome time for us.”

Begor’s Supply began as Tools Plus when Jamy Begor opened the business while still in high school, noticing a need in the Mooers region for tools and equipment required by area homeowners, farmers and commercial construction contractors.

The business grew rapidly, and Jamy’s parents, Norma and Larry, became part owners.

In 1998, the Begor family expanded and constructed a new building to house additional products and materials, including more hardware items, tools, plumbing, drainage and heating equipment.

In 1999, the family incorporated and changed the name to Begor’s Supply, Inc.

Begor’s Supply grew again in 2004 with an expansion of its main retail and commercial building to house more products, including hardware, tools, septic systems, drainage pipe and fencing.

Begor has enjoyed the business, but right now she’s concentrating on the party.

“While people are here they can pick from a beautiful selection of balsam trees,” she said.
