    When firefighters working on the West Fork Complex fires are asked what they need, most replies have been “good wool socks.”

    As a result, The Outfitter Department Store decided to get help from local residents and visitors and provide them what they need. Staff at the store found that Carolina Hosiery produces an 80-percent merino wool, antimicrobial scent eliminating sock and got a special price from the company — $5 a pair.

    Stop in the store and purchase a pair of socks. The cost is $5 a pair, cash or check only, please. That is the cost of the sock, plus shipping. There will be no profit on The Outfitter’s part; the store owners and staff just want to help these guys and girls. The store will ensure the purchased socks are delivered.
