Around Town: Fare Thee Well and Thank You, Scotland By the Yard!
I would like to personally thank Don Ransom, owner of Scotland by the Yard, for his years of loyalty to the Quechee Times and to the Quechee community, as a whole. I have known Don since I was 11-years-old (my best childhood friend was the daughter of the original founders of the business) and have watched him spearhead the annual Scottish Festival and run and grow the familiar Celtic Imports business from its early days on Main Street in Quechee. I was recently looking through archive issues of the Quechee Times and saw an ad for Scotland by the Yard (see above) in the very first issue published in December 1972. I am quite certain they have advertised in every issue since then.
Rumor has it that he and his wife, Susan, will be retiring the business soon. With great appreciation and gratitude, I wish you both a wonderful next adventure and thank you whole-heartedly for the 44 years of advertising loyalty!
