Old-time feel

The store itself bears no resemblance to a big-box chain. The shelves are crowded and stocked with specialty items, local brands and products you’re not likely to find elsewhere. The staff of Petersen and Jay Myers is ready to answer questions — whether about custom feed for horses or for brown leghorns.

Kevin Petersen, the father of three young children, is learning to appreciate anew the attraction of the old place.

“My kids love to come down here and play,” he said. “I think they’re glad we never tarred the parking lot. It just wouldn’t be the same.”
