Porter's Unique Idea

When the old Merritt store on Porter's main street closed in 1986 it meant the end of coffee shop and cafe for the towns people. A unique idea arose in the community and the Porter Development committee was formed. The committee made the plans and raised the funds for the new cafe and grocery store and the equipment to run it. The cafe is now under the name Arlene's and is doing quite well in the eyes of Porterites.
