Johnny’s Store in Namao is once again open for business.
One of the oldest standing stores in Alberta, Johnny’s Store by Maristins has converted from a convenience store to a local vendor market.
New store manager Amanda Dube said it's a special place.
"It feels absolutely wonderful. We are in Alberta's oldest cornerstone and that's amazing in itself."
The longtime shop just off of Highway 37, has a total of 63 different small vendor's work on display.
"I'm happy to be in the community and I'm glad to be able to offer an opportunity for local vendors to showcase their artwork," added Dube. "Having the opportunity that crafters can have a place they can showcase their stuff year round in addition to doing markets is a really great opportunity for them to build their business."
The building took months of renovating to prepare for opening.
