Summary
  • Located on the main street of a small town, Gully's store sells everything - shoes, wax, matches, and rain gear. If she could, Mavis would buy everything in the store. Merna is married to the owner of the store and when the owner suddenly dies, she holds a wake and then closes the store down - indefinitely
  • Mavis's parents speculate that Merna must have inherited a fortune. Intrigued, Mavis goes over to Merna's house to see if she can spot any evidence of this fortune. She doesn't find any money, but happens upon something even better: friendship
Summary
Mavis's favorite shop is closed down indefinitely when the owner dies, leading Mavis to enter into a lifelong friendship with his widow
