The Chamber Chatter
If you haven’t had a chance to visit, Sleepy Hollow Books & Antiques (now located on 50 Congress St., formerly on Waldo Street) you really should do so. The owner is Craig Roberts and he has been dealing with books for over 20 years. But Sleepy Hollow is not your ordinary bookstore. They have a wide variety of antique books as well as newer and modern books for the young and old alike. They also sell antiques, model ships & airplanes, tarots, jewelry, precious moments, MTG cards, comics, swords, art, etc.
Sleepy Hollow Books & Antiques is open Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10a.m. to 3 p.m.
Welcome, Tractor Supply Co. to Rumford and the River Valley area. It is located at 142 Valley Circle in Rumford (former Hannaford/Sears building). I met with Chris Ouellette, the new store’s manager and they will be having their grand opening/ribbon cutting on June 22. There are more than 1,150 of them in 45 states. TSC stores are focused on supplying the lifestyle needs of recreational farmers and ranchers but it also serves the needs of those who enjoy a rural lifestyle, as well as tradesmen and small businesses. Look for more information on the store’s “soft opening” happening before the June 22 event.
