Cultivate clarity, strength, vitality and power from natural, beautiful and organic living foods.~Bryant McGill
The Oakland Community Store & Learning Center is a relatively new store in the rural community of Oakland, Oregon. The space it occupies is small, but it has the potential to be a top-notch natural store, once it fully develops.
The store’s exterior has a rustic facade. Its tellurian paint and the unique bench built from antique wagon wheels sets the ambiance, while modern signage announcing the store’s presence blends nicely with its surroundings.
Inside the store it is clean and well-organized. A lovely brunette shopkeeper working the counter is charming, easy to talk to, and has a deep sincerity for organic foods. Her zest for healthy living is infectious.
The shelves are stocked with local-grown items and major fair-trade organic brands for the concerned shopper, at surprisingly competitive prices. Various juices, gluten-free foods, books and other items can be found throughout the shop too. The locally produced honey and organic vinegar selections are particularly impressive.
A brief conversation with the owners is enough to know that they’re outgoing and friendly people with a great business plan; they project strength and fortitude, tempered with earthy personalities that will surely be mirrored by their business.
A Crow’s View is confident that the Oakland Community Store & Learning Center will succeed. This ethereal little shop will unquestionably fill a much needed demand for the people of Oakland, Sutherlin, and the surrounding areas.
