Shepherd Chamber of Commerce has a new member. Mike Nassans opened his UHAUL Business at 2711 S. Byrd Ave in Shepherd. Mike also owns 'Mike's Treasure', a discount grocery store in a separate building next to his office. This includes heavily discounted but up to date groceries. He has canned goods, breakfast items, cookies, sodas and water and more, all at $1 per item. He also has some wall hanging handmade wooden crosses with different decorative additions at $15 each. If you have some good quality items you would like to sell, contact him at 936-697-8066. Mike is open from 8 AM- 6 PM Monday through Saturday. You can rent a UHAUL online 24/7. He has all sizes and is also able to offer labor help with moving. The Chamber will hold a ribbon cutting for his business once we are able to gather together again.
If you need pressure washing, trash pickup, scrap metal hauling or help with large trash haul offs call Scott Randall at 346-402-2036. If you would like to see a sample of Scott's pressure washing you can see it at Coldspring Chamber of Commerce on N. Butler next to Care Share. The Chamber was very happy with his work, not only on the building but on the porch furniture and stairs.

Last week I mentioned that Shepherd E.D.C. had hired a Lauren Migl as the Economic Development Director for the City of Shepherd. Lauren graduated from Shepherd High School and lives here with her family of four. They love the outdoors, fishing, camping, hunting and from talking with her, I can see she is a very positive person. She is looking forward to seeing Shepherd E.D.C. bring more businesses into our town and if you have any questions about making a move with your business, you can contact Lauren at 832-401-4058. She told me there are at least two businesses 'in the works' to come to Shepherd, more on that in the future.
I called into "The Dragonfly's Nest Emporium" at 11231 Hwy 150, Suite 6, in Shepherd to buy more of the handmade soaps owner Mary Taylor stocks. They are all made from natural plants, Lavender, Pumpkin, Vanilla, Oatmeal etc. Of course she has much more to offer! The store has jewelry, some clothes, home decor and antiques. Mary is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 AM-5 PM She closes for lunch at 2 PM. You can email her at email@example.com.
I am glad to have some positive news to report this week! Our county has been hit hard with the Covid 19 virus this last month, so stay safe everyone.
