Montana general store ‘a labor of love’

The New York Times 06/14/2022

The Fishtail General Store in Montana is based in a town with about 250 residents. It has been owned and managed by Katy Martin for 22 years. The store serves a wide variety of consumer, such as miners, ranchers and business executives. “People feel comfortable coming here. They stand in line and they talk. It doesn’t have to be about anything big. They share their stories and what is happening in their lives. That makes us more compassionate,” she said. “And the fact that we have great food doesn’t hurt.”
