Neihart Store Cooperative
The Neihart Co-op Development Steering Committee is considering plans to form a cooperative that would buy the Neihart Inconvenience Store from current owners, Royal and Nancy Westerveldt. They like the idea since they no longer have the time necessary to run the business.
The Westerveldts first opened the store in 2008, stocking it with essential items for all who reside and pass through Neihart. The store has also become a popular place for people to grab a beverage, chat and meet for community events. During the summer months, the store has hosted several Saturday evening community pot lucks. These events have united the very diverse community of full and part-time residents.
