There are some new faces but for customers the same friendly service at Freddie’s Trading Post on Highway 17 in Deep River. Tom, Deb and Ken Myers took over the local business from previous owners Fred and Charity Hoelke at the end of March.
For Ken and Deb, running the store is their retirement project after years of work as a millwright / mechanic and bus driver respectively. The couple has owned property in the area for some time and relocated to take over the local business from Muirkirk in southwestern Ontario.
Together, the family has a few plans for how they would like to see the store’s services grow, but say they will take their time settling in first before launching any changes.
