Art Meier has sold his grocery and general store, a landmark for years in the town of Holway, to Chris F. Brunner of Stetsonville. Brunner will take possession Saturday, April 1.
In May of this year Meier will have been operator of the store for 20 years, having purchased it from his father, Fred Meier, in 1924. The father bought the store 19 years before that, in 1906, from Henry Liberty, who was operating the store, a sawmill, farms and other enterprises in Holway at the time.
The senior Meier, prior to his purchase of the store, has operated the Riverside hotel in Medford. The original store building burned eight years ago and Art rebuilt it.
