After a year on the market, and still not bites-- they almost closed their doors for good. But the community--with the help of the Burlington City Market--- came together to save the over 100 year old store. ((Scott Tower/Mansfield Community Co-Op Board Member 3096 00:43:54 "We didn't want to see it as a tenant building with multiple apartments. We thought it should remain a store, and obviously from the first meeting we had 40 or 50 people there. They wanted the same thing." 00:44:12)) Tower says they raised around $40,000 to get the business going. The Davis' have agreed to keep ownership of the building for the next few years until the members can raise enough to buy it. They also hope to expand the building and parking one day. As for products, they'll be keeping the deli but changing a few things. ((Brita Hansen/Underhill Country Store Co-Op General Manager 3054 00:31:49 "The inventory into more of a market. More fresh food and bulk food and that kind of thing." 00:32:02)) Peter and Nancy Davis say they won't be going far, and they're happy to see the business in the hands of their friends and neighbors--a community that rallied behind their store.

Good Morning, the sports calendar a bit light with a number of cancellations Sunday: Thunder Roads first race of the season was postponed, as was the Dartmouth baseball team's final doubleheader of the regular season against Harvard. Those games will be made up Tuesday afternoon in Hanover, and they'll be critically important for the Big Green. --- Dartmouth took both games against the Crimson in Boston Saturday afternoon, and then got a ton of help as Brown won the last 3 of a four-game set with Yale. As a result, the Big Green now sit in a virtual tie with the Bulldogs in the Ivy League's Rolfe Division Standings. If Dartmouth can take one of two against the Crimson on Tuesday, they'd force a playoff with Yale for the division title and a spot in next weekend's Ivy League Championship Series at Princeton. If the Big Green win both, they'd win the division title outright. Now making it to the championship series is critically important, not only because it gives Dartmouth a shot at a conference title, but the winner of that series gets an automatic bid in the NCAA Tournament as well. --- In the Majors, Monday is an off day for both the Red Sox and Yankees, but one NHL playoff game with the Caps visiting Pittsburgh, and in the NBA, the Cavs and Hawks start their series while the Thunder and Spurs play game 2. With your sportswrap, I'm Jack Fitzsimmons.

Next week, the business will re-open as the Underhill Country Co-Op. The couple was grateful to see the large crowd that showed up.

After a year on the market, and still not bites-- they almost closed their doors for good. But the community--with the help of the Burlington City Market--- came together to save the over 100 year old store. ((Scott Tower/Mansfield Community Co-Op Board Member 3096 00:43:54 "We didn't want to see it as a tenant building with multiple apartments. We thought it should remain a store, and obviously from the first meeting we had 40 or 50 people there. They wanted the same thing." 00:44:12)) Tower says they raised around $40,000 to get the business going. The Davis' have agreed to keep ownership of the building for the next few years until the members can raise enough to buy it. They also hope to expand the building and parking one day. As for products, they'll be keeping the deli but changing a few things. ((Brita Hansen/Underhill Country Store Co-Op General Manager 3054 00:31:49 "The inventory into more of a market. More fresh food and bulk food and that kind of thing." 00:32:02)) Peter and Nancy Davis say they won't be going far, and they're happy to see the business in the hands of their friends and neighbors--a community that rallied behind their store.
