The Cheraw High School Band places in the statewide band competition year after year. Cheraw placed 4th in the state for the Fall 2005 season. They have many unique marches, some of which are new to everyone else when they first see Cheraw. This year's show included a marching run. Yes, the students ran (in step) while playing thier instruments. You can support the Cheraw High Band through the Band Booster club or at the annual Craft Fair.
Inn Cheraw is an old family run hotel located on 2nd Street in Cheraw. You will find that this hotel does not offer many of the ameneties of a larger hotel chain. There is no continental breakfast, high-speed internet or premium television. On the markee Inn Cheraw still advertises that they have "color tv". From the looks of the rooms this hotel has not been updated in the last 20 years. There are many better hotels in Cheraw.
Herald Office Supply offers many of the products you would normally purchase at Staples or Office Depot in a larger town. This is a family run business and they are there to help you. If you don't exactly know what you need (ink, etc) for your printer or fax machine they will look up the information for you. You will find that the employees of Herald Office Supply are much friendlier and more wiling to help than the employees of a chain officer store.
If you (like many others) have run out and purchase a (very) expensive Dyson vacuum you may be shocked to find it no longer working and needing repairs. Central Vac Central can repair your vacuum or sell you the parts you need to fix it yourself. If your vacuum IS working you may not know where to buy the replacement parts (belts, bags, etc). Central Vac Center keeps these items for many models in stock. They can also special order parts for you.
Credit Central (surprisingly located in Anderson NOT Central) is a good place for you to check out before signing for a loan with another bank. Credit Central needs your business and will try to help you with whatever loans you may need. They can do small loans (just for a vacation or to help get you to the next month) or they can help find a good loan to purchase a new car or refinance your current car. When you are shopping around for a good loan be sure to check with Credit Central.
Tan Central is another tanning salon located in Walhalla. They offer many of the same amenities of other tanning salons including memberships, per visit tanning, and the spray on tan. You can also purchase any tanning products (lotions, goggles etc) that you may need. Tan Central has reasonable prices. They do not offer any student specific specials.

Central elementary School consistently gets good tests scores in all grades. This year the state mandated standardized tests even included a new subject and Central Elementary scored higher than the state average. Central Elementary is a good school for your kids. You can expect them to get as good of an education as any other school in South Carolina.
If you are looking for an automobile or home loan you may consider speaking with someone at Credit Central in Anderson. They have experienced officers who will try to get something that fits you. In my experience if you want the best rate you should look for loans online (where you should get a lower interest rate), but if you are more interested in dealing with someone locally you could speak with these guys.
If you are living in Central you may have no access to cable tv...leaving satellite as your only option. You could go with DirecTV or Dish Network, but you will probably be surprised to learn that Central Satellite Services can provide you with everything you need to receive the same channels at a much lower price. They will help you get everything that you need and you'll save a lot of money. If you are thinking about getting satellite you should definitely talk with the guys at Central Satellite Serivces first!
