Just Imagine a New Bookstore

 

continued

After a four-month renovation, a new owner reopened North Country Store as Marathon Country Store, a gas station and convenience store. "I'm very picky about location, and I saw a great opportunity in Chelsea," says Ron, who wouldn't give his last name but says he owns another Marathon station in Hamburg. The store, which opened in January, sells groceries, alcoholic beverages, camping and barbecue items, ice, and firewood. In the next three months, Ron says, he plans to open a Pizza Hut Express--responding to customers who've told him they miss the pizza that was sold at North Country.

Marathon Country Store, 20941 North Territorial. 562-9050. Mon.-Fri. 5 a.m.-11 p.m., Sat. 6 a.m.-11 p.m., Sun. 6 a.m.-10 p.m.

Phil and Jennifer Tolliver have purchased the Bearclaw Coffee Company franchise in the Oak Tree Plaza on Old US-12 next door to their Northwoods Beef Jerky store. Phil Tolliver says Bearclaw corporate owners Debi and Doug Scroggins, who previously owned the franchise, were such great neighbors that a year ago the two couples created an interior doorway between the stores to encourage customers to roam and browse.
