Customer Service; it’s in my blood.

The old family store

We have been serving customers like you since the turn of the century (off and on). Here you see an ancestor standing in front of an Everett venture in Maine. I think this was one of the Holt boys, if it was an Everett he would surely be in the store helping dad pack rutabegas in fish brine, or whatever turn of the century merchants did when they weren’t stoking the wood stove, or scooping out a few pounds of lard for a customer.

The partnership with the Holts prospered until a big fight over a checker game broke up the partnership. To this day an occasional Holt boy will drive by our house and yell “King me!!”. It’s not pretty.

I like to think that these honest, hard working ancestors would enjoy our web store at – wish I had their business sense, and work ethic. The tax structure from 1910 would be nice also.

Have your say!
