Dickson Richard is a Sarasota immigrant with a fun and useful business proposal; opening the only retail store on the length of the Legacy Trail. Called the Legacy Trail General Store it will be located at 595 Church St, Nokomis. The property backs up to the Legacy Trail near its midpoint, not far from downtown Venice. It will offer nutritious snacks and beverages, useful paraphernalia for bikers and runners, and a nice quiet seating area to relax.
Reporters from local TV channels, radio stations, and newspapers have already been raving about the fledgling business. The General Store is a member of Friends of the Legacy Trail, Beautification of Venice, and has applied to be on the bicycle advisory board for Sarasota County.
25,000 people use the Legacy Trail every month during season; 13,000 during of-season. With numbers like these we believe that the Legacy Trail General Store stands poised for great success.
