One Pentwater farmer is helping out a convenience store in Ruby Creek with getting his store up and running.

Chancey Madema bought Ruby Creek Store last Friday and has found it hard to keep the store shelves stocked with inventory.

Lori Green, of Green Ventures Farm, found out about Chancey’s struggle and decided to donate some asparagus for his store. She said he could sell it and keep the profits, too.

“It’s an honor,” Chancey said. “People are still out there that are good and they want to help the community and help a small business.”

Lori said she knows how tough it is to start out in business, so she feels good helping Chancey out.

“I like people and I like to see people succeed,” Lori said. “I believe in being an entrepreneur.”

Lori promised to donate over 1,000 pounds of asparagus to Chancey for his business.
