GPCA OFFICE CLOSED FOR 14 DAYS

The governor has announced that the expected peak in Corona virus cases should occur in the next week or two. 

In an abundance of caution for our staff, we will be temporarily closing the office in Norcross, and asking our staff to work remotely. 

If you place an order for materials over the next two weeks, you may experience a delay in shipping. Our apologies for this, but know that we are doing our best to protect the health and well-being of all parties involved. 

If you need to place an order you can do so online at gpca.org or by calling the office at 770/417-1881.

Thank you for your understanding and we will emerge from this stronger soon.
