Day 62

Riverside, Washington Corner Store Assessment

Background: Riverside is a small community in eastern Washington. It has only 1 small grocery store/convenience store and one bar/restaurant. Most locals purchase groceries from the neighboring town of Omak (7 miles). Although Riverside does not sponsor a local farmer’s market, Omak does hold a biweekly market seasonally. No out-of-ordinary activity levels were witnessed, yet water recreation may occur during earlier hours of the day.
