We stopped by Battenkill Valley Creamery vendor Sherman’s Store in West Rupert, VT yesterday, and talked with new co-owner Carol Connors. She re-opened the store with business partner Pat Garrison in late October of last year.
“It’s home. When we had the chance to buy it, we knew we had to keep it a store. It’s what the community needed, and we’ve been very thankful for the very receptive and supportive nature of the town when we reopened. We love carrying Battenkill Valley Creamery milk because it’s local, and that’s something we really want to focus on. The maple syrup, the honey, the milk, etc. We’re trying to get as many local products as we can, including produce this spring. It’s the right thing to do, supporting your neighbors.”
We think so too. Happy to have another local business back in the area! Thanks for joining the Battenkill family Carol and Pat!
