The Trading Post has a new name.
Scott Schryer, who owns the store, along with his wife, Jamie, said the new name is J&S General.

“We have the new sign up and we’ve switched over,” he said. “We went to new items. We don’t have used items. We are focusing on hunting, fishing and trapping. We do have clothes in there, toys and household goods. It’s still a general store.”

Scott’s Trading Post is now going by the name J&S General. Scott Schryer is still working on getting the store set up so they can issue fishing and hunting licenses.

Schryer is still working on getting the store set up to issue fishing and hunting licenses.

“We don’t have it yet,” he said. “The last I talked with the DNR we went from No. 15 on the (priority) list to No. 9 (statewide list). We are moving up the list (for the necessary equipment).

“As I was talking to them, we’re hoping for the fall, before bow season begins. They have the equipment but the batteries went bad on them. Whoever was making them stopped making that particular battery. I’m still optimistic.”

Schryer acknowledge outdoor activity has been slow in recent weeks with the weather.
