ABOUT The Puzzle Piece in Carthage Nc

What does the name mean??

No, we don't sell puzzles. Well not in the sense you may be thinking anyway. 
The name of the store is in honor of our son, who has autism. Autism is represented by a puzzle piece defining the complexity of this brain disorder.

“Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.”   (Autism Society NC)

You’ll find that we are dedicated to educating our community about autism; the myths, the facts and the fun! Because so much of what we do is wrapped in our son’s needs, we can talk autism all day and look forward to every opportunity to do so.

Who is The Puzzle Piece

The Puzzle Piece is a For-Profit Consigned Retail Store specializing in quality gently used products including clothing, home & garden products, electronics, vintage items as well as seasonal items.

The Puzzle Piece is owned by Christine (Chris) & Brian Garton, who are raising 3 children one of whom has a disability. Chris, an Army veteran and Brian also an Army veteran of 25 years as a Special Forces soldier, retired in April 2012 now call Moore County their home. 

The Puzzle Piece will offer their disabled son the opportunity to experience his own independence. While taking on duties in the store, this will allow him to interact with the community and gain important skills and knowledge that will increase his independence while building his self-confidence.

The future of The Puzzle Piece will be determined by our level of commitment, quality of our customer service and involvement in our community.

With predictions of 2" to 4" and rapidly dropping temperatures, and how Moore County was caught off guard for the last round of snow, I have decided to CLOSE today and NOT make the same mistake as last time.

Today I will take advantage of this extra home time and start building an ONLINE shopping page so you can shop from home too! How exciting is that??
