T' By Ron Wilson How far do you go to get a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread? In rural communities, accessing sup- plies can be a challenge. Many rural grocery stores have closed, but today we'll learn about one which has newly opened. Last issue we learned about Shane Tiffany who owns and oper- ates Tiffany Cattle Company with his brother Shawn. He also operates a new full-line grocery store in rural Kansas. Shane grew up in Morris County and met a student named Morgan from nearby Alta Vista. They bet came high school sweethearts and ultimately were wed. In 2007, the Tiffanys came back to take over the local feedlot. In 2010,~they moved to Morgan's hometown of Alta Vista. "We love the community and love the people in thei:ommunity," Shane said. In fact, Shane found himself elected mayor. But something had hap- pened in Alta Vista as the Tiffanys were moying there: The local gro- cery store was closing its doors. "Tlaefe had been a store in Alta Vista~ih~ce the beginning of the town,? Shane said. "It had been in its ctii'rent building since the 1970s~" As mayor, Shane Tiffany rec- Annual Machinery Consignment Auction ogniz&l the importance of such a local.~erYice. It's a source of busi- ness, ~bs, sales tax revenue, food, and a-social hub. Without it, the nearest 8tore was 13 miles away. : : Shandapproached various-compa- nies o)ut reopening, to no avail. Finally he said, "I think we can do this." He researched grocery store operations and ultimately bought the old store building, which had deteriorated by that time. The Tiffany family pitched in to totally redo the building. They took up the old tile, sealed the floors, and the wives painted the walls. They partnered with Affiliated Foods, the grocery supply cooperative. The Tiffanys called the store Alta Vista Market. Meanwhile, a new neighbor moved in to the house across the street from the Tiffanys. It was Aaron Monihen, whom Shane had known as a kid growing up. Aaron had worked in retail distribution for 13 years. He became the new manager of Alta Vista Market. As the building was being re- modelled, Shane got a call from another friend who said, "I have something to show you." It was some like-new counter tops which the friend had purchased from a closed convenience store. "I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with these," the friend said. "Could you use them?" It turned out that the counter tops fit perfectly into the newly designed space of Aita Vista Market. TheTiffanys did buy new equip- ment s~ch as a 13-door walk-in cooler. They designed it so the re- frigeration condenserswere placed outside in order to conserve en- ergy. "The investment in newer. more energy-efficient equipment was worth the cost," Shane said. On June 28, 2014, the Alta Vista Market opened for business. Certain things are striking about this store. Number one, it is clean. - PRIZE GIVEA~VAYS & REFRESHMENTS - ~J THE LEADER FOR FINANCIAL SUCCESS IN :-:- FARM MANAGEMENT !. i: WEALTH MANAGEMENT &TRUST SERVICES CENTRAL NATIONAL BANK Trust, Estate, Retirement & Successor Planning Design & Implementation of Farm Management Plans Tenant Selection & Lease Agreements Farm Accounting Jason Ray Accredited Farm Manager (402) 879-7712 ext. 7712 Toll Free (888) 262-5456 www The Week of March 2, 2015 Leader Page 5 bright, and welcoming. Number two, the old barnwood around the cooler creates a neat rustic atmo- sphere. Number three, the diver- sity of products available in the store is remarkable. Monihen and all involvedfor mak- ing a difference by restoring local grocery service in their rural com- munity. Oh, and by the way: Honey, would you grab some milk down at the store? Ron Wilson is director of the Huck Boyd National Institute for Rural Development at Kansas State ", University. Of course, there are the essen- tials of milk and bread. B ut there is also everything from bird seed and dog food to propane, live bait, dia- pers, cleaning supplies and medi- cine. As one might guess, with a cattle-feeding owner, there is lo- cally-grown beef for sale plus other meat from the local locker plant. "We want to stay as local as we can," Shane said. There's also a fryer and pizza oven so hot food is available daily. There are fresh sandwiches, pizza made to order, and tacos on Tuesdays. Such a store is an important asset in a rural community like Alta Vista, population 434 people. Now, that's rural. "It's been a lot of fun," Shane said. "It's been a blessing. I'm so proud of this community." How far do you go to get a gallon of milk?
